I've Got Moxie...

I really do...

A huge thank-you goes out to a good friend in town (who happens to be married to someone I used to baby-sit...now they have a little boy of their own...I feel old. Sigh.) who much to my delight, I have just discovered are readers of the blog...Hi guys! Anywho...she came bounding in with this wonderful vintage Moxie bottle last week...which made me giggle immediately...

Moxie.

I've always thought of Moxie as energy or pep...which I have been finally feeling as of the middle of this week...But, I've only been sort of right. Did you know that Moxie is considered by some to be the first mass produced soft drink? (1876) And was bottled for medicinal purposes (tonic) But fell out of favor to Coca-Cola except in New Hampshire (live free or die y'all) yet is now bottled in a plant owned by Coca-Cola...Rich, have you or anyone in your family drunk Moxie? I would love to know what it tastes like...

At any rate, I am happy to be feeling more peppy...believe me, it's like welcoming an old friend back...

Speaking of which...

I did yesterday
over a cup of coffee. Yes, the D-Man is back for a bit of a stay...who knows how long, but it's always good to catch up...

Of course, no Moxie to drink at Cuppers...just some coffee, which I suppose is like tonic to some and does afford pep with caffeine...except those of us whom are now restricted to decaf (believe me, if you've ever seen me on regular coffee you'd understand...)

Have a wonderful and amazing weekend all...among other fun and festive weekend activities, I happen to be helping someone move so it's good I got the Moxie back...

I LOVE Moxie! My dad used to drink it. You can still purchase it - saw it in a grocery store in Texas - but I didn't buy it because I have been told that the recipe is different (like what happened to original Dr. Pepper), and I didn't want to be disappointed. Original Moxie is (was) like a very yeasty/malty, less sugary version of draft style root beer.
Glad you discovered it!
