Moxie is a brand of carbonated beverage that is among the first mass-produced soft drinks in the United States. It was created around 1876 by Augustin Thompson (born in Union, Maine) as a patent medicine called “Moxie Nerve Food” and was produced in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The sweet soda is similar to root beer, with a bitter aftertaste. It is flavoured with genitian root extract, an extremely bitter substance commonly used in herbal medicine.
