What's your avitar pic? From the handle I'm guessing autocrossing a vw.
Shacks on ponds are some of the best places in the world.

Yeah - that's me autocrossing the semi-daily '92 Jetta. Nothing like having a few expensive and time consuming hobbies, Brewing, Dabbling in motorsports, Mountain biking...

Not the soda I thought--what's the one that has the mollases taste to it? I tried some when living in Maine--I think it was payback for feeding my classmates 'switchel'.

My wife, who is from TN, believes the secret taste of Moxie might be sassafras root. She might be close. I've had sassafras root tea and tastes marginally like the aftertaste of Moxie. I grew up in downeast Maine now living in east TN and a guy I grew up with lives over in western NC, both of us have been been trying to get our grubby mitts on just a 6 pack to enjoy.

The moxie label shows gentian root. I'm going to try brewing a batch with it

Moxie is available in PA. In fact, it's bottled by the Catawissa Bottling Company. They will ship the plastic bottles. Here's their "unsophisticated" website: http://catawissabottlingco.com/. I've found it in small grocery stores in the area - none of the big chain stores.

I swear, it comes out of the water fountains where I live.

Interestingly, Moxie also makes an energy drink that only costs $0.99 for a pint can. I only wish it tasted like the real thing.

Fix the Pumps from Darcy O'Neil references some books from 1897-1930 and includes a recipe for Moxie syrup. Don't know if it's related at all, but it appears to contain wintergreen, gentian and syrup of sarsaparilla. So as it was mentioned, if that's the same Moxie, then it does appear to be sarsaparilla with gentian which would make it more bitter than sarsaparilla or rootbeer.

It's so funny, I grew up with Moxie in Southern Maine as well...at the time it was bottled in Georgia (believe it still is). I moved to the DC area and had to travel to Georgia on business often...thought great, I'll be able to get Moxie...nope, they made it there but you you couldn't find it outside of New England (easily anyway)...always joked it must be how they got rid of their toxic waste. I'll be home next month and look forward to having one.

Are you able to quote that recipe to the forum?
