Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for query.
I will suggest you never to give brandy to your child.Your daughter is having rhinorrhea which is a common problem,give her plenty of fluids especially warm water,give steam during night.
give her balanced diet so as to build her immunity.avoid fried food and all kinds of junk food.
In case her symptoms get worse i advise you to take her to pediatrician.

your daughter will be fine
take care.
