I started a batch of strawberry wine over the summer and am looking to backsweeten it. I'm thinking of using a mixture of red grape juice and strawberry margarita mixer. The grape juice should be no problemo, but the strawberry mix is what I am hesitant about. Any cons to adding that? I know i will have to wait before bottling to allow it to clear. (Also i have already stabilized it )

Thanks!

do bench trials , the mixer may give you artificial strawberry taste.

I used some to flavor and sweeten a batch of skeeter pee. Like you stated, you will have to wait for it to clear again. It has bits of pulp too which might result in a loss of some of the added flavor when it drops out. But my SP was delicious.
