Liquid+Electronics=Death
I dare say the MB is fried. Water damage can happen weeks after with the effect of corrosion but sounds like you had a near direct hit.
Have a read through I spilled liquid on my Macbook what should i do guide !!!!!

Really without having it look at by a  genius we cant tell you much more.

HTH
