throat-spicy

compounding adjective
Describes the spiciness of foods with a liquid component.
 
My roommate and her boyfriend use this term to describe the types of spicy foods she prefers eating and finds the most satisfaction in making.
Etymology : : compound between the roots “throat” and “spicy”. A nonce word. Used to describe the deep, pervasive burning sensation experienced by the esophagus as one ingests spicy food that either has either a thick sauce or broth. In order for a food to be throat-spicy, it must contain a spicy liquid element. The effect of this spiciness on the body lasts a relatively long time because the spiciness is felt throughout both the throat and the mouth.
