The coasters also come packaged in a Blue Sun metal tin. You can sign up for the waiting list on both right now and be the first in line when preorders open.

Dany's coffee cup

Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen has an impressive (read: ridiculous) number of titles. Whenever she or Missandei rattles them all off it takes a full 30 seconds. So, just imagine if she went to Starbucks. She’d have to order a venti just to have room to fit everything.

nescafe-paper-mugs-hed-2014

If you still read the morning paper, Nescafé wants to help you enjoy it with their clever new ad campaign. They’ve come up with an insert called a “Pop-Up Café” that contains two paper mugs and instant coffee. You only have to pop them out of the newspaper insert, fold them into shape, add a little hot water and enjoy your morning cuppa. Just make sure you do it right so you don’t end up with a puddle of scalding hot coffee in your lap.

See how they work in the video after the break.

Oh, dear. It appears that there’s a Grim in your tea cup. Drat. Well, if you’re not up-to-date on what a Grim is, it’s an omen of death, and it typically comes in the form of a black dog (Harry Potter once saw a grim in his tea cup too).

Don’t worry though. Etsy seller Crucify made this hand-painted tea cup with a Grim on the bottom, so you’re not actually witnessing a bad omen. Or are you? Maybe you should stay indoors for a while. Do try and stay away from sharp corners and don’t run with any scissors anytime soon.

Happy Fourth of July! If you’re throwing an Independence Day shindig today, you might want to try out this fun recipe from Buzzfeed. You actually take a whole watermelon, scoop out the inside, and fill it up with Jell-O and vodka.

When you dish out the watermelon, make sure to pass out smaller-sized portions–the recipe calls for roughly four cups of vodka, so this watermelon definitely packs a punch.

If you’d like to check out the whole recipe, head on over to Buzzfeed.

Only the Colossal Titan’s momma could love a face like that. However, if you’re a fan of Attack on Titan, then you’ll definitely dig this Colossal Titan 16-ounce mug. It’s excellent for both holding your beverage of choice as well as tearing down enormous walls. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to be patient if you want this mug–it’ll be available at the end of 2014. But you can pre-order now.

Check out the sides of the mug after the break…

disney frozen cocktails

Are you sick of Frozen yet? To bad because Disney Tokyo has concocted a line of inspired cocktails that are available at the Disney Ambassador and Tokyo Disneyland hotels any time between now and August 31st.

According to Rocket News:

  • Olaf is made from fresh pineapple, pineapple syrup, passion fruit syrup, and coconut syrup.
  • Anna is a blend of peach nectar, strawberry syrup, blue syrup, blueberry sauce, Calpis water and pink coloring.
  • Elsa is a cool blue mix of grapefruit juice, lemon juice, blue syrup, and gum syrup.

I’m also betting you can ask a bartender to add a little alcohol as a premium. Just make sure you don’t get your Anna mixed up with your kid’s Elsa or your trip to Disney is going to get a little crazy.

Coffee wine in a can

Make your mornings weird by tossing back a can of coffee flavored wine. Seriously. The product is coming from Friends Fun Wine in two flavors: Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino. Just don’t expect a caffeine and alcohol buzz. Friends Fun Wine’s Facebook posting describes the product as follows:

We know you must be curious, and it’s a bit hard to describe the taste – you have to experience it, but once you try it you will fall in love, we promise! it’s a non caffeinated, low alcohol, low calorie drink.

Huh. I’m not a fan of flavored coffees so there’s no part of me that’s interested in this concoction. I’m guessing the company did some sort of market research to lead them in this direction though. Maybe they were looking for a Four Loko for the boxed wine aficionado.

Would you try this bizarre beverage?

Star-Wars-Stacking-Mugs

These Star Wars Stacking Mugs feature three, 3.5-inch-tall porcelain mugs that, when stacked, feature an image of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo or an imposing stormtrooper. If you’re feeling like causing a little inter-galactic mayhem, you can arrange the mugs so that Luke’s wearing the stormtrooper’s helmet, Han has Luke’s boots or the stormtrooper has Han’s… er, pants? Anyway, the mugs are safe for microwave and dishwasher use too.

Wolf drinking horn 1

Drink like a Stark with this wolf head drinking horn from Chischilly Pottery. The Etsy shop came up with this design, and though it makes me instantly think of Game of Thrones theme parties, it would make a perfect accessory for renaissance faires. The shape means you could never set it down while you’re drinking it, but isn’t that kind of perfect?

The mug is made to order, and you can choose from different finishes. Turnaround time is approximately two weeks. There are also dragon versions for Targaryens.

Check out more photos of the drinking horns after the break.
