It is considered a burnt red. Sangria means blood. It is classed as a red or violet, but could be classed as a dark pink, just a red or even a slight brown. So considering all this, I would think you could try some red with violet or red with some brown. I think I would definitely play around with it a few times to make sure you get the exact color you are wanting. I got sort of a sangria color one time. It wasn't the color I wanted, but ended up with it. I think I had mixed some red and violet. Good luck!

I agree with Sandsher. I am attaching a color swatch for sangria color. You could start with red and add some burgundy liquid gel to it to bring the red to a darker color to just a beginning of a brown tone. I wish you were here. I am pretty good at matching colors to a swatch ;-)
