The woman ordered a ‘fireshot’, where the drinker fills their mouth with an alcoholic shot which the barman then lights, at a cafe in Groningen.
However, the flames engulfed the woman’s face, leaving her with second degree burns.
She was taken by ambulance to the city’s Martini Ziekenhuis before being transferred to a specialist burns unit in Beverwijk.
A spokesman for the Martini hospital said it was the first case doctors had encountered of somebody suffering burns from a fireshot.
No further details were disclosed about the woman’s state of health.
