I’ve seen many people wondering if Sosuke’s mom made Sosuke and Ponyo hot tea with honey. Thanks to my official Studio Ghibli food book, I can confidently say it’s milk with honey! This recipe is super easy and may even sound a little boring, but let me tell you – it is delicious. It’s warm, creamy, and slightly sweet. Everything you would want during a rain storm at night.

I know this drink is popular among many cultures and is said to soothe throats when sick or to help put children to sleep.
Some delicious additions
In the movie, Sosuke’s mother only puts honey in the milk. While this is yummy on it’s own, I like adding a small dash of cinnamon for some extra depth to the drink. Most of my Ghibli dishes I try to keep as close to the movie as possible, but I just had to add cinnamon to this because I really feel it takes it to the next level. Some followers recommended adding a splash of vanilla or even sweet butter to this drink! The hot honey milk base is pretty simple in flavor so I’m sure there are tons of delicious ways to customize and have fun with this drink!
