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!

Step 3: Make the crust

Now is time to make the cookie crust you are going to use as a base.

- First, grind the cookies untill they are practically reduced to dust.

-Then, put them in a saucepan, add the butter and heat the mix while you stir it until the butter is completely melted and you get an homogenous pastry.

-Finally, cover the base of your springform pan with the mix and let it cool for a bit. It's a good idea to put the pan in the fridge for a while, so the crust gets harder.
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 :)
