How to pay homage to your heritage with Alexandra Dorda

Welcome to Cozying Up with The Clear Cut where we get up close and personal with women that inspire us. This week we’re cozying up Alexandra Dorda, the founder behind the new DTC alcohol brand, Kasama Rum! We discuss how her Filipina-Polish background influenced her brand, the ups and downs of running a business, and the best engagement ring and drink pairings! 

Listen here for the full podcast:



As a young woman starting her own alcohol business in a male-dominated industry, there were a lot of challenges from production to suppliers and to appeal to target audiences. Alexandra plans to keep on launching brands that will be disruptive in their category such as exploring the whiskey, gin, and other sparkling spaces.


We play a small game where we look at different engagement rings and try to gauge the owner’s cocktail of choice. Tune in to listen to what drinks pair best with which engagement rings by Alexandra!
