Default Christmas cake

I have heard that it is good to add some brandy to a home baked
Christmas cake. What is the best to use?
Thanks

brandy (or rum) as it is horrid.

You can use modestly priced cognac or, as I do when I have it, Cointreau or
Grand Marnier.
Feed the cake weekly between now and Xmas.
