They’re setting the bar high.

The alcohol brands of Ryan Reynolds, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and David Beckham have joined together to donate $1 million towards organizations that benefit bartenders.

In a hilarious video posted Friday, Aviation American Gin owner Reynolds, DeLeón Tequila owner Diddy and Haig Whisky owner Beckham are seen taking a sip of a cocktail made with each of their alcohol brands, only to spit it out in disgust.

“This is why we need mixologists and why we’re donating $1 million to their causes,” the ad stated.

Beverage company Diageo, who owns all three brands, will donate the funds to Another Round, Another Rally, a nonprofit for the hospitality industry in the U.S. providing reimbursement grants and immersive educational scholarships.

Funds will also go to the Bartender’s Benevolent Fund, a non-profit for hospitality professionals in Canada, as well as Drinks Trust UK, an organization that has been providing support, care and assistance to the drinks industry workforce since 1886, according to a press release.  

“Never trust an amateur to make you a drink… Let’s leave it to the professionals,” Beckham wrote on Instagram on Friday.
