Ethanol flame. The flame is fuelled by ethanol from the surface of an ethanol-filled crucible. Ethanol (CH3.CH2.OH) is a type of chemical known as an alcohol, which is the common name for it when used in alcoholic drinks. It burns with a relatively clean (not too sooty) flame, having a relatively short chain of carbon atoms for each molecule.
