Waterbenders can certainly bend vodka, because it has water in it. But we don't need it t be showed, right?
Right, but we're talking about like Iroh just said, the symbolism. Fire is the opposite of Water. What's the opposite of ice? Lava. There's just a million ways to point lava to being combined with fire symbolically. Chemically and physically, it's earth. But it is a part of fire as well, just because of the similarities in color/temperature and the fact that lava makes other stuff catch on fire. Etc.
