    My esophagus burned in sympathy

    “They say it puts you in the right frame of mind to receive visions of the future,” Daisy said. Then she took her drink from Nick and threw it back like it was water. My esophagus burned in sympathy?? as Nick did the same thing.

    I agree. Esophageal burning makes me think of acid reflux. If the person's throat was warmed/burned by the harshness of the alcohol, then the writer should've said "throat."
