THIS is the shocking moment a DJ spits Jagermeister on parygoers at a crowded Costa del Sol club despite the coronavirus outbreak in Spain.
Footage shows the tattooed DJ soaking partygoers crowded into the Kokun Ocean Club in the UK party spot of Torremolinos – before passing the bottle.

DJ Fali Sotomayor deposits what he has just drunk in a cloud of haze as tourists and locals go wild on the dance floor below him.
He then passes the bottle around so the dancers can take turns sipping the herbal liqueur while the dance floor rings out.
It comes just hours after coronavirus-stricken Spain recorded its biggest daily increase since the lockdown and thousands of flights were canceled.
Mr Sotomayor today apologized for what happened – and admitted to acting ‘irresponsibly’ amid the resurgence of the coronavirus in Spain.
Speaking on behalf of promoter Les Castizos, the DJ from Malaga said: “We accept full responsibility for this incident and are ashamed and sorry for what happened.
“Kokun Ocean Club is in no way responsible for our actions and our fully respected social distancing.”
Sotomayor added, “We feel indebted to the thousands of colleagues, artists, audience members and others who feel overwhelmed by what they have seen.”
A spokesperson for the Malaga hotel association, Mahos, added: “This shows a totally negligent attitude in what is a pandemic.
“We will never defend such an attack on public health.”
Figures from Friday showed that the daily number of cases in Spain climbed to 3,092 – the highest number since May 11 – and that number has been in four digits every day since July 16.
Nightlife, including nightclubs, have been linked to a large number of new cases of coronavirus in Spain.
Regional governments across the country have taken steps to close them or reduce their hours of operation and the number of people who can be inside at any time.
Only one of the revelers dancing to the music in the video can be seen wearing a face mask.
And even she had it around her chin leaving her mouth and nose exposed.
Local reports said the incident happened on July 7, although the video did not start circulating until Saturday.
Since last Sunday, British holidaymakers returning from Spain have had to self-isolate after the government announced a rapid change in quarantine rules.
It followed a spike in new Covid-19 cases centered on Aragon, Catalonia and Madrid.
Resorts in areas like the Canaries, the Balearic Islands and the Costa del Sol are trying to persuade the UK government to create ‘safe’ airlifts.
Local officials hope tourists can continue to visit Spain without having to isolate themselves on their return – the economy being dependent on a return to tourism.
Some hotels have, however, said they could not reopen for the summer season due to changes in the rules.
Speaking yesterday, Mauricio Carballeda, president of the Palmanova-Magaluf Hotel Association, confirmed that less than a third of hotels in Magaluf and the neighboring resort of Palmanova will open in August.
He said at least five more hotels had abandoned original plans to open following the UK’s quarantine decision.
Mr Carballeda told the local press: “Of the 88 hotels in Palmanova and Magaluf, only 33 are open or will open.
“Now after the UK announced it was quarantined for returning UK tourists, two of those hotels will close and three have said they won’t open.
“That leaves 28 hotels out of 88. The recent measures announced by the UK government have made an already complicated and difficult year worse.”
He added: “We hope the UK will urgently change its mind and reconsider what it has done. “
Spain started easing its lockdown in early May, with different regions progressing through a four-phase process depending on the number of cases.
The country saw daily cases drop in May and June but, like many in Europe, they have started to rise again in recent weeks.
The spike prompted some areas to reintroduce some movement restrictions, and Britain and Germany urged tourists not to visit Spain.
Some 600,000 Britons who have booked holidays in Spain now face two weeks of isolation upon their return after the sudden rule change.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this week that there were “signs of a second wave” in Europe.
The Prime Minister warned: “What we need to do is take swift and decisive action where we believe the risks are starting to explode again.
“Let’s be absolutely clear on what is happening in Europe, among some of our European friends I’m afraid you’re starting to see in some places the signs of a second wave of pandemic. ”
European countries were hoping to reopen after being ravaged by the virus in March and April as the epicenter of the pandemic moved to South America and the United States.
