      Hey Casey,
      What a great idea!
      I can’t see any reason why that wouldn’t work.
      Send us pictures when you’re done.
      Thank you for your question and for logging on to thegreendivas.com!

      Hi Kalee,

      I made my tiki torch fuel using the alcohol recipe and so far it has worked very well. I bought the 91% isopropyl alcohol at CVS. I would have purchased the 96% but they didn’t carry it. I got 3, 32 oz bottles for around $10. I think I saved $3-4 by purchasing the 3. I added 2 tsps of distilled water to the 32 oz bottle of alcohol…1 tsp distilled H2O per 16 oz of 91% isopropyl alcohol. I put the cap back on the alcohol and shook the bottle. I gave it a shake before every use.
      I this formula works perfect for my needs. I can’t say the recipe will with a different type of wick or when other ingredients are added. My tiki torches stay lit and last. When they go out all the fuel was used up….nothing left in the canister.
      I hope this helps anyone looking for an alternative to tiki torch fuel. I can’t it was any cheaper though. Maybe even a bit more expensive when u add in the price of the water. I’m sure I could find the alcohol cheaper than what I paid at the CVS.

    I was wondering if the glass ever crack or break since the fire gets so hot. I would love to make a couple of these as I live in Minnesota and our state bird really should be the mosquito. I just don’t want any exploding glass. Any advice?
