Jeff Bridges is giving fans of The Big Lebowski something to drink to today, starring in a short film honoring a favorite cocktail – the White Russian with Kahlua.

“As a short film entirely inspired by a simple classic cocktail, this story is creative, enigmatic and beautifully shot,” the Academy Award winner told PEOPLE about the project.

The White Russian, directed by Ivan Zacharias and produced by Kahlua, is a “cult movie-inspired story about the unlikely meeting of two men from different worlds, as told by a man reminiscing about his past adventures.”

Bridges, 64, memorably played Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 cult favorite The Big Lebowski – and if there’s one thing the Dude knows, besides bowling, Persian rugs and the occasional acid flashback, it’s how to mix a perfect Caucasian.
