I you had to think of a famous Spanish beverage, without a doubt, you'll think of Sangría.

In Spain, Sangría is mostly drank in summer, since it is very refreshing and it has a low percentage of alcohol.

If you want to surprise your guests with an exotic dessert, this sangría cheesecake is a great option!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Ingredients:

For the cheesecake:

-150 gr (5 oz) of plain/butter cookies.
-150gr (5 oz) of butter.
-200ml (7 fl oz)  of cream.
-1 yoghurt.
-Flavorless Jell-o (Enough to make a pint and a half).
-250gr (1/2 lb) of cream cheese (Philadelphia).

For the Sangría:

-1 cup of sugar.
-Red wine
-Fruit (I used an apple, a pear and an orange)
-Juices/sodas (I used pineapple juice and orange soda)

Step 2: Make Sangria

Making sangría is really easy. With this quantities you'll get about two pints of it. Obviously, you won't need that much for the cake (You'll use about 2 cups).

First, put in a bowl or another recipient half a pint of red wine and a a cup of sugar and stir until it disolves. Then add half a pint of orange soda and half a pint of juice and stirr well again.

Finally, cut the fruit in pieces and put it in the wine. Let it settle for about 15 minutes and you are done!
Two great treats on their own can only be better when combined, right? Great instructable.

Would I be able to participate? Does this count as a photo instructable?
Ha! I already forgot my own rules. I think I'm running too many contests. Sorry :(

Haha, it's okay, I just wasn't sure. Either way, is it ok to make a photo instructable of this or that would be against instructables policy?

This is really well-documented. For a better chance at getting featured, particularly for your recent cheesecake projects, include a better main image. Pretend it's for a super-fancy restaurant with tiny portions and inedible garnish on a white plate. Try this food photography instructable for some tips and tricks.

I'd love to, but I'm a student, living alone and the materials I have are... let's say limited xD
That looks delicious! What a unique cheesecake :)
