How to make the perfect Moloko Plus
If you speak any language other than English, you can find the original version of "A Clockwork Orange", with its original 21 chapters. Anthony Burgess wanted these 21 chapters to be an allegory of becoming an adult. On this chapter, Alex grows tired with violence, which sometimes is associated with youth, therefore, becoming an adult. But the Americans decided that a happy ending was too passé, so they removed the 21st chapter. So did Stanley Kubrick on his movie, and now Anthony Burgess had to live to see himself despising his own great creation.
Just starting the book (or the movie), you can meet the characters at the Korova Milk Bar, drinking "Milk with Knives", which will sharpen their senses and get them ready for ultraviolence. Nowhere in the book says anything about ingredients, except for milk and barbiturates (which we obviously didn't use); so I thought we had carte blanche to proceed any way we wanted.
I did a search on the Internet, of course, to see if I could find someone with a recipe, and I can't believe I found so many variations of this drink. And me not being a regular drinker hadn't even heard some of the liqueurs fancier people used for this, but I've learnt a lot! Now I know what is Grand Marnier and Ricard Pastis; nonetheless, I decided to create my own version as I am a practical person who doesn't like complication.
