We’re going to improvise.
You see, moonshine is around 180 to 190 proof, or about 85% – 95% pure alcohol.
The closest legal thing you can get is Everclear which is sold in both 151 proof and 190 proof.
In other words, you can buy legal alcohol that is the exact same thing as illegal moonshine.

For taste (as well as safety) purposes, it is almost always mixed with cocktail or fruit juice blends.
Is Moonshine stronger than Everclear?
Everclear is 190-proof. Let me make that clear. By comparison, most rum and vodka clock in between 40% to 60%, or 80 to 120-proof. As of right now, Everclear is deemed the strongest alcohol on earth: chemistry doesn’t allow anything stronger than 191-proof to exist.
