Default burgundy food coloring

I need to make burgundy color royal icing roses, but I do not have
burgundy paste food color and cannot get it in time. I have attempted
mixing Wilton's Red-Red with differing amounts of royal blue, sky blue
and violet, but the results turn out rather "muddy". I'd appreciate
any help with the correct ratios of colors to mix, please.

Here's a color chart, but it doesn't give ratios.

Another problem is that if you're not starting the process with primary
colours (red, yellow blue and NOTHING else), your results will be
unpredictable.

For instance if you yellow has a touch of blue to make it look more
'lemony', it will affect your mixing. Try to find colours that are straight
and not mixed already. In other words, 'Royal' and "Sky" blues are probably
already mixed.
