Sterno is made from denatured and jellied alcohol. In fact, there are instances of people drinking Sterno to become intoxicated. The practice became popular during the Great Depression in hobo camps, or "jungles." Sterno would be squeezed through cheesecloth or a sock and the resulting liquid mixed with fruit juice to make "Jungle Juice" or "Squeeze".
