The Moloko Plus, also called Knifey Moloko is a highball cocktail drink from the book A Clockwork Orange.[1] The book does not specify ingredients, so there are many variations, all of which use a large milk base and some have drugs, such as barbiturates added.

In the book, it is stated one may have moloko plus with 'vellocet' (opiate), 'synthemesc' (sythetic mescaline), 'drencrom' (adrenochrome) or other hallucinogen substances. Minors may be served this drink since it contains drugs that have not been declared illegal.[citation needed] In one apocryphal, commercial incarnation it is created by combining: 1 oz absinthe, 1 oz anisette liqueur, 2 oz Irish cream liqueur, 1 tablespoon sugar and 5 oz milk, in a shaker with ice - all shaken, then strained into a tall glass.[2]

The drink's name originates from the Nadsat word for milk, translated as "milk plus". The main characters in the book prepare for "ultraviolence" by drinking it.
