Being a New Yorker my whole life, I'd only heard about Moxie, the New England soft drink, from what I'd read. So when a friend of mine went to Maine recently for a few days and asked me if there was anything he could bring back, I asked for a bottle of Moxie. What I got was in a can, bottles being hard to come by, but I tried it -- and liked it!
Now about that flavor...it strikes me as something like Dr. Pepper, something like root beer, something like sarsaparilla with a medicinal "finish" -- but what exactly is it? Any thoughts?
