Combine the wine, brandy, juice, and fruit in a large container or glass pitcher. Cover and chill completely, 1 to 2 hours or overnight.
Add soda to mixture when ready to serve. Using a little lime juice wet the rim of the glass and then coat it with brown or granulated sugar.
Serve with ice.
I prefer not to rim my glass with sugar but that’s just a personal preference. A great idea might be to have plates next to your punch bowl or pitcher with a variety of sugars so that guests can experiment.
