Actually, you're not too far afield.  Moxie was originally compounded by a Medical Doctor (from Maine IIRC) and derives is bouquet from the Gentian Root which was also the basis for Gentian Violet - a vivid purple liquid compound used to treat canker sores on the gums.  It has probably fallen into disuse since the late 50's/early 60's.
