Can we flambé in a tin-lined copper pan?

I was wondering if we could do this since the burning temperature of ethanol is much higher than tin's melting point. On the health side I think it's totally fine, since tin is pretty much inert so if it gets into your food it should be fine. But what about the effect on the tin lining itself, would this make the lining wear off quicker?
