Bobcat108 Says:


Moxie is a brand of soda that was created in the last quarter of the 19th century in Massachusetts. It's still found in the New England area & is less sweet than other sodas; some histories describe it as bitter (because of the gentian root extract in it) & sweet. According to the Wikipedia article, the name Moxie comes from an Abenaki word meaning "dark water." The advertising for the product led to the adoption of the word moxie as meaning vim, spirited, or chutzpah.
