I don't have any brand suggestions, but I can tell you that cheap brandy is awful and expensive brandy is delicious.

 

Brandy stores well and most recipes only call for a little bit, so I regard it as a flavoring and bite the bullet and buy good brandy.

 

Brandy, butter, and green pepper corns make a delicious sauce for elk, and would be good on chicken or beef.

 

I thought sangria was wine and fruit juice.  I wasn't aware that there was any brandy in it.

Most top shelf sangria (as the naming craze goes) has brandy in it - usually cheap stuff like Ernest & Julio. We make sangria in a 3 litre spiketed tea container. Lots of orange, lemon, lime slices, strawberries and watermelon chunks. If you got a large punch bowl even better, then your guests can ladle out lots of the fruit into their glasses. A LOT OF ICE is really important. Being very cold really makes the sangria more refreshing, if it gets warm folks get sick easy. Not pretty party favors.

Sangria is a wine with fruit and fruit juice, white or red wine, with a shot of Brandy, I guess people  will always try and reinvent the wheel, I suppose there is a favorite recipe for every bartender, growing up on the border I like my Sangria light, not to get drunk or a buzz, but to stay hydrated and to enjoy, your family.
