Re: Alcohol in base?! Sounds dangerous to me!
if you'd put a REALLY REALLY cheap vodka in the base, it'd be fairly inexpensive way to test your theory. I know that you can get some stuff that would be disgusting on its own, but only costs like $5. You could try that, or mix water/alcohol if you're feeling cheap.
I've never done it personally, but it doesn't sound dangerous to me.
Experiment, if you never reply on here again we'll all assume you died from alcohol inhalation. Lesson learned either way =D
On a less morose note, I'd just try it. Other people have done it, as for it getting you drunk I don't see it working. It's not as if the base liquid gets absorbed to significant levels in the first place, alcohol being 5-50% would be even less so.
