White lightning 'stead of mountain dew,
I took a little sip and right away I knew,
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue!
Lightnin' started flashin' and thunder started crashin'
Shhhoooh . . . white lightning!" -George Jones

Colloquial term for grain alcohol, made from corn in a moonshine still. This clear, illegal, and very potent beverage was a favorite in the Appalachian Mountains during US’s prohibition years.

Cheap, clear cider. Tastes like distilled urine. Probably is distilled urine. Carreis the stigma of being an under-18s-down-the-offy drink and of being taken (in huge amounts) by chavs.
And Johnny took a sip of White Lightning and spat it right back out again. "This is shit! And all those wannabe MCs drink that? Blimey, no wonder their rhymes were crap and their eyebrows fell off!" he said.

Moon Shine, very high in proof, almost always over 150 and more around 200 proof, and if drank straight can some times burn chemically. White lightning if not made properly can cause blindness and in some causes death due to impurities in the making. It is legal to make white lightning, but is illegal to sell, the amount of white lightning a person can makes varies from place to place, but you still cant sell it.
THIS is the best white lightning ive ever had.....IM BLIND!!!
