Korova Milk Bar

The Korova Milk Bar (korova is Russian for "cow") appears in the novel and film A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, twisting the milk bar into a less innocent place.

The bar serves milk laced with drugs. The protagonist and narrator Alex lists some of the (fictitious) ingredients one can request: vellocet (opiate), synthemesc (synthetic mescalines), drencrom (adrenochrome). For another ingredient he uses the phrase (drink the milk) "with knives in it," as it "would sharpen you up".[1] By serving milk (instead of alcohol), the bar is able to serve intoxicating libations to minors. In the film, the bar has furniture in the shape of naked women and the milk is served from their nipples.
