What adhesive should I use on glass and be sure alcohol won't break it down? Answered

I want to reuse beer bottles to make drinking glasses but am going to have to glue glass to glass. I don't want the alcohol in the beer to break down the glue and either a) poison someone or b) have the glass come apart while drinking from it. 

Any suggestions?

Yes I am making mason jar dispensers with soap and lotion a friend of mine was wanting hand sanitizer but I also put little figurines inside and the hand sanitizer is eating the glue up that is holding the figurines I was just wondering what kind of glue I could use that wouldn't eat up the glue and that would stay in a dispenser with hand sanitizer thank you

I meant to say that the alcohol wouldn't eat up the glue

Parlite glass glue adhesive is extremely effective. It can bond glass to any other substance, including another piece of glass. This glue has all the advantages , but comes in a squeeze dispenser with comfortable finger grips which add to the preciseness of glue application while keeping the glue off of your fingers.

Seconding epoxy, not so much superglue. I have had very little luck supergluing glass.
Question for FencingSmoker: Have you considered an alternate design where the glue doesn't come into contact with the beverage? Might work better for you that way.

Thirding epoxy but clarifying that it has to be food grade or risk horrible consequences.

Personally, I'd just get the 1 liter bottles and use those as beer glasses.  You could potentially contact a catering service that serves booze and see if they ever get those and if you could have them.  Then there are bars and restaurants that might set them aside for you if you're a good loyal high-tipping patron.  And then there are glass recycling bins...  My SO and I have collected bottles from two of those sources, and one wasn't a catering service.
