Saturday Grab Bag: Thankfully, No Drinking Games
So I wasn’t able to find any Hayao Miyazaki drinking games, for which I am eternally grateful! I did, however, find this cute-as-pie latte art depicting Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service (I was unable to find a source for it, sadly, so if you recognize it from somewhere please let me know!).
I also found some interesting drink recipes from D20 Girls Magazine, who had a Miyazaki Marathon with Ponyo Punch, Pom Poko Energy drinks, and Totoro’s Hot Tea. And Cinema and Spice did a cute bathhouse specialty cocktail for Spirited Away as part of their Spirited Away Bento Box Dinner Party. And, surprisingly, there was already a Ponyo cocktail, though the article mentions that this is just an affectionate nickname for the drink (which is a spherified aperol spritz).
That’s all for Miyazaki, at least for now—but we move from the sublime to the ridiculous in Japanese animation from here, because next week’s drinks are for Ouran High School Host Club! This one was verbally requested by a couple of different people, whose names I sadly was not smart enough to write down. Also, it marks the third week in a row of requested animated media (and the fourth one total)—I can’t tell if I’m driving the animated bus or various followers are, but either way feel free to throw tomatoes at us as we drive by. ;)
 Bear is driving bus! How can this be?
