It’s almost time for the Moxie Festival

I love Moxie. Not this Moxie (although she’s great, too). This Moxie. I don’t know how anyone could NOT love Moxie. If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out. Chances are, if you don’t live in northern New England, you haven’t tried it. Southerners pass on all the great things to leave room for crap like hogs balls.

The Moxie Festival is coming up in a few weeks. I’ve never been, but I plan on going this year. I don’t know where Lisbon Falls fits into the equation. It was created in Union.

It also makes a great mixer. If you’re from Maine, or know anything about it, the names make perfect sense.

Moxie has also grown in popularity in recent years in regions of southern Maine and Connecticut due to its mixability with certain spirits. Notable Moxie mixed drinks include the “Welfare Momâ€?, which consists of equal parts Diet Moxie and Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy; the “County Girlâ€?, a drink made up of one part bourbon whiskey and two parts Moxie on the rocks, with an optional lime garnish; the “Mad Mailman”, a mixture of Moxie and Jägermeister; and “The Vijay”, which consists of one part Moxie and one part blended American Whiskey. Many people, even those who do not like the soda on its own, find it refreshing when mixed with whiskey.

  2. You’re just upset to learn your sister drinks “County Girls” AND “Welfare Moms”.

  3. Great ideas for Moxie mixed drinks! I have enjoyed Moxie since I came home to Maine from living in Scotland in 1994. I will have to give these a try, how can anyone not enjoy an ice cold Moxie or even a room temperature one! I love the diet as it’s not so sweet. Thank you
