Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized; the product is illegal in many states. “Moonshine” is the term for alcohol produced illicitly, and raw milk has been nicknamed “mooshine” (moo + moonshine).
“Mooshine” has been cited in print since at least 2009.
Wikipedia: Raw milk
Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized. While proponents claim there are benefits to raw milk that is made without pasteurization and homogenization, the medical community warns of the dangers of unpasteurized milk. Availability and regulation of raw milk vary from region to region.

First rule of milk club: Don’t talk about milk club
BY BRUCE WATSON
But first, a little background. Raw milk is unpasteurized, which means that, unlike supermarket milk, it is not heated to kill bacteria. Pasteurization is intended to protect against food poisoning and disease, which were a big concern in the 1930’s when milk accounted for one in four foodborne diseases. In most circumstances, it’s still illegal to sell milk that has not been pasteurized.
