Get down low and go, go, go.
I saw the image on fuzzysquid and had to comment.
Alcohol burns at a low enough temperature that, if you're ballsy about it (and not sloppy like this jackass) you can just suck one down and be fine with it - it'll quench for lack of oxygen before it generates enough heat to burn you. (You can actually pour grain alcohol over your hand and set it on fire and be okay - you'll lose any hair off the back of your hand, but your skin is fine; not enough heat comes down from the combustion to the surface of your skin to burn you.)
Where dumbass here went wrong is, like somebody else said, trying to pour the shot - giving it PLENTY of oxygen. And spilling it on himself. And even then, he probably wasn't actually badly burned; that would mostly have been OMFG FUCKING PANIC because, you know, HIS FACE WAS ON FIRE. Hahahaha. =)
(note: not that I'm promising to down a flaming Dr. Pepper without blowing it out first, myself. I might... but then again, I might not. I mean, come on... face on fire. Low temp of combustion or not, YIPE!)
