I can’t say for sure whether it was the subliminal messaging from the slew of Halloween costumes of “The Dude” I encountered this Halloween, or the cold end of autumn weather outside that has me craving the coffee flavor of Kahlúa, but I am counting down until I can head home from work and cozy up on the couch with a deliciously classic, White Russian.
Academy Award-winning actor, Jeff Bridges, has been in the mood for the Kahlúa classic as well with his recent role in a Kahlúa Productions short film in which Bridges recounts an adventure-filled story with twists and turns for the characters, all while sipping on a classic White Russian cocktail. In a company release Bridges states, “The White Russian is one of the most popular classic cocktails and it’s seeing a massive revival right now, so to work with Kahlúa on this project is great timing.” Bridges continued, “As a short film entirely inspired by a simple classic cocktail, this story is creative, enigmatic and beautifully shot.”
