It was a Ja dropping moment - now it's immortalized as a cocktail

One big playoff series play has been immortalized in cocktail form at El Mero Taco in Cordova.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — If you've been following the Memphis Grizzlies playoff run, you may remember Ja Morant's massive dunk on the Timberwolves’ Malik Beasley.

Now you can re-live every Ja dropping moment one sip at a time. The play has been immortalized in cocktail form at El Mero Taco in Cordova.

“It took a couple of tries and we finally found something that worked just right,” said Nichole Roberts Creator of the Ja 12. “It wasn’t too sweet but it’s got a little bit of spice to it. So it’s kind of a good drink for it, cause Ja's got some spice to him.”

The drink is called the Ja-12 and it's made with tequila, which we have learned in Ja's drink of choice, especially when he's shopping for jewelry or flying on a private jet.

Ja ready for this? Our newest drink JA12 made with @cincoro blanco, pineapple, and a hint of jalapeño. We’re so ready...
