This curious-tasting soft drink has a truly devout following, especially in its native state, and the weekend of July 10 to July 12 brings all the Maine Moxie-lovers together to honor this official state soda. The Moxie Festival in Lisbon Falls features everything Moxie imaginable, plus a parade, road and canoe races, pony rides, and other festival mainstays. But the focus is on the drink. If the Moxie Chuggin’ Challenge isn’t up your alley, try the elixir in ice cream form, or come up with a completely original concoction incorporating Moxie for the recipe challenge. Moxie muffins, Moxie-glazed ham, Moxie cream pie — the possibilities are endless.
