A Molotov cocktail is a hand-held incendiary device. One makes it by pouring gasoline into a narrow-necked bottle and stuffing that bottle with a cloth wick that dips into the gasoline. To use it, the user lights the wick and throws the bottle.

British Commonwealth speakers usually refer to these as "petrol bombs," using the British name for gasoline.
