FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY, DO NOT ATTEMPT
Step 1: Procure an empty bottle, the larger the bottle the better. I think wine bottles are the best.
Step 2: Fill the bottle up to the neck with a 50/50 mixture of motor oil and gasoline. The motor oil extends burn time, and sticks to surfaces.
Step 3: Seal the opening tightly with either a cork or a thick rag, and cover in multiple layers of heavy tape. Shake well to mix the gasoline and motor oil.
Step 4: Take a tampon, and tape it (multiple layers) facing fuse-end-up, on the bottom of the bottle. This means the opening that you just sealed is facing down, and the thing you're going to light is facing up.
Step 5: Soak the tampon fuse in any of the above flammable substances, and throw. In the end it should look a little like this
This is an improvement over the traditional in two ways. Since the fuse is taped to the outside of the bottle and spaced farther away from the fuel, there is no chance of being covered in burning gasoline when you throw it. The second way is ergonomic. There's a reason the Germans made their grenades to look like this, you can throw them farther and more accurately when there's a handle/lever movement involved.
EDIT: One last thing I forgot. For extra fun, build the ultimate molly AS A HARMLESS CHEMISTRY EXPERIMENT. SRSLY. Instead of plain old oil and gasoline, use 15 parts by weight powdered high explosive, to 80 parts gelled fuel (napalm, I'm not going to tell you how to make that). Then add 5 parts primary explosive (mercury fulminate, lead azide, etc.) And stir until well mixed. Light fuse and throw. It will burn normally for a short period of time, then explode violently. Make sure to throw in an empty area, away from people and private property.
