Restrict access to file, but allow links

I have a zip file uploaded on my site. I want to restrict access so that people cannot type the URL directly into the address bar, but I want it to be able to download if they click on a link to the file on my site. In other words, if the referrer URL contains, let the file download, otherwise, restrict access. Can I do this with the .htaccess file, and if so how? Let me know if you need any clarification. Thanks!
