Use phpMyAdmin from master branch or newest 3.4 beta, it can connect
to Drizzle though MySQL protocol.

Drizzle is made to be a simpler and more scalable DBMS than MySQL, and
it supports only UTF-8 - all other character sets are gone, along with
SQL queries that allow for their use. You may want to look into
official docs [1] to look for differences.
I already researched it a little as I want to implement full Drizzle
support during this year's GSoC :)
