    Alcohol slows your metabolism and therefore your body heat drops. It doesn't raise your temperature, although you might get hot flashes and it feels like it.

    If you mean in a thermometer (not in a body) it is because it has a high coefficient of expansion, changing size a lot with each degree of temperature change.

    grain alcohol 1.12 E - 3/° C or 112 E-5/°C

    water 2.1 E – 5/°C

    or alcohol expands at over 50 times the rate of water
