Hand sanitizer with alcohol (or any regular alcohol) is an excellent survival item to have...disinfects, lights as easily as any other flammable liquid out there (the trick is to place items into the flame to light them; don't douse the item you want to burn with the alcohol), and it can be used to cool you off much more quickly than water since it evaporates so quickly (think desert environment).

Bacardi 151, as mentioned, or pure grain 200 proof alcohol since it will not leave a sticky residue like 151 rum will, may even better for obvious "calming" reasons, as long as you don't abuse it where it is clouding your judgment or senses (very, very dangerous in a survival situation) or making you feel artificially warm & leading to hypothermia.
