Try a glue called E6000. It works great on all kinds of materials....even glass to glass. Good luck.

You are asking about repairing a mug that you will be using for coffee/tea and maybe dishwasher and microwave - correct?

I'm not sure about any of the products mentioned but you should be sure the glue you use is food safe, will hold up in water and withstand heat.
Most glues will not do this and very few are FDA approved for using with food.
I would suggest you go to an Ace hardware store and ask someone to help you find an FDA/food approved glue or go there and read all of the information on each glue before you buy. You can also check out each product online to see if it is safe to use.

From University site:
If the ceramic piece you're repairing is an item you use to serve or display food, look for an FDA approval stamp on the product label. That certification is the only way to know for sure that the glue is food safe. Otherwise, you could be exposing yourself and your family to harmful chemicals."

I'm sorry - I hit close before I had finished my answer.
I know you are repairing a broken cup handle that will not touch food but if you use a glue that is food safe then it will also be waterproof and can be heated - mainly dishwasher safe while many other glues will fall apart in water and/or heat.

This is also to remind anyone gluing plates, bowls, platters, or any type of item that any kind of food will touch that any glue used should be FDA approved to be safe for food.
