The undisputed champion of New York City drinking institutions is an ancient taproom called McSorley's Old Ale House, serving house-brand ale in sparkling, heavy-handle glass mugs, two-at-a-time. John McSorley founded the bar in 1854, calling it the Old House at Home. He changed the name in 1908, after his old signboard blew down. Since then McSorley's has seen a long line of famous patrons such as Teddy Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe Kennedy, Woody Guthrie, Mickey Mantle, John Lennon and JFK. Abraham Lincoln visited here after giving his famous Cooper Union address in 1860, and a chair where he supposedly sat is kept behind the bar. When the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup in 1994 they took the trophy down to McSorley's and drank out of it. Double-fisters take note: beers come 2 at a time McSorley's, served exclusively in these handsome 8 1/60ml glass mugs, now available for the home bar. Instructions for frosting: If the mug is fresh from the dishwasher, let it cool before frosting. Place the mug in the freezer. Choose the coldest section, and allow room for air to circulate around the mug. Leave the mug in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour, until an even layer of frost builds up on the surface. Remove, fill with your favourite beer, and bottoms up!
