Fruit syrup (diluted if it's too thick).
Good quality grape or other fruit juice.

Usually !/3 cup fluid in cookies means that it is integral to the recipe (unlike 1/3 cup fluid in soup). Changing brandy with non-alcoholic sub could be tricky because it could effect the texture (due to alcohol) a lot. Also a lot of alcohol content are baked off during baking so that might not even be an issue. What is the recipe?
