My girlfriend gets a burning rectum after just a sip of alcohol. It doesn't matter the type wine, liquor or beer. Why would this be?

In brief: Needs evaluation

probably with proctoscopy/colonscopy.
She may have some form of inflammatory bowel disease, usually either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease (but there are others), which may sometimes be exacerbated by drinking alcohol. A gastroenterologist or colorectal surgeon should be consulted and can take a look through an endoscope and figure out what is wrong and how to treat it.
