Riding the mollymawk

OK, I'm not even going to try to guess how Willie ended up astern of the Wanderer hanging from the maw of a giant albatross (aka "mollymawk"). I'm sure "eleven up spirits" has to do with liquor because what else? But I can't find anything on the Internet that explains what exactly that means or the provenance of the term. Although it's not like an albatross is going to be impressed anyway.
