** Another clip shows a guy who takes a shot of something alcoholic and spews it on someone smoking a cigarette, setting the poor guy's face on fire.

Possible in RealLife, but only with very high proof alcohol (at least 100 proof[[note]]The concept of "proof" came from the Royal Navy's method to test the purity of their rum, a 100-proof spirit means that gunpowder doused in the spirit will still catch fire and burn[[/note]], or 50% ABV). Anything lower will sputter a bit, if not put out the flame. Beer and wine aren't going to do it; you'll need to use something distilled. You'll need a good strong whiskey, some fierce vodka, 151-proof rum, absinthe, moonshine, or while not really what one would consider booze, PGA. That's right, pure grain alcohol -- 100% ethanol. For things that aren't technically booze, there's methanol, industrial alcohol or wood spirit. Do not drink this stuff! (And for methanol and alcohol fuels based on it, ''don't even put it in your mouth for this stunt,'' the tissues of the mouth absorb!) Do not breathe it in! Do not get it on your skin! It is nasty! There is also isopropyl, commonly called rubbing alcohol. It is expensive and definitely not for drinking, but it burns nicely. Obviously, this is a hazardous stunt [[DontTryThisAtHome best left to practiced performers]].

SisterTrope to AerosolFlamethrower. A more distant cousin, with more ToiletHumor but only slightly less realistic, is the idea of harnessing a concentrated source of methane into a weapon of {{Fartillery}}.

{{Fartillery}}. Another way to use booze as fuel for an impressive fireball is the MolotovCocktail.

* Pandaren Brewmasters in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' have both a "throw booze" and "spit fire" abilities, which can be combined. Later, with the ''Mists of Pandaria'' expansion for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Monks with the Brewmaster spec start having this ability. Extra damage is done to enemies already soaked in booze by the other Brewmaster attacks as it ignites them for Damage over Time.

** Cotton does this with sake in one of his war stories. Sake should also not be strong enough, as its alcohol content is roughly the same as wine.

* [[http://darwinawards.com/personal/personal2005-14.html Attempted]] by a guy who wanted to show off at an [=SCA=] event. Of course, he'd never done this trick before, and was underage to get alcohol so used Coleman stove fuel instead, which is why that link leads you to the Website/DarwinAwards site. (He survived.)
