re-attach ceramic towel rod

I'm not sure what adhesive to use. I have ceramic towel bar, both holders had come loose. It's the type where small squares about 2 in by 2 in were cut in to the tile (one for each rod holder) and then the lip of the holders were recessed into the holes. I have cleaned out each of the holes, and the drywall behind looks dry and in good shape. What product do I use to re-attach the holders, and how's the best way to support it while it's drying / curing? Thanks in advance, Steve

Just use ordinary tile adhesive - thinset will do fine. Just allpy a blob on the wall and push the support fixture in. The adhesive will hold the fixture for you but to keep it straight and to further support the holder after you apply the bar, use painters tape to secure it to the wall until fully dry.

you can buy very small quantities though. If you can get latex additive to mix it with to add strength (Don't mix with water).
But - In your case - I would check in the caulk isle. Look to see if liquid nails has a product for tile. It would be fast and easy. I'm pretty sure they do. You can use some duct tape to hold it in place while the glue dries. Make sure all surfaces are clean and free of old adhesive first. You will also need to re-grout. You could also use caulk if you could find a good color match.
