In brief: Ethanol/Methanol

Sterno is a mixture of ethanol and methanol and a gelling agent.
Idiots strain it, mix it with fruit juice and call it "squeeze." methanol basically pickles your brain and any other organ in contacts with. Used appropriately it is great for keeping the food on the buffet line warm, but that is its only legitimate use.
