I would try adding a tiny bit of brown.

Be prepared to mix for hours!! LOL I made my husband a cake for his birthday and needed maroon but only had burgundy as well. The trick is to add red to it - and a tinge of brown if you feel you need it in the end. I used almost the entire bottle of both colors before I was happy with it. Good luck to you!! Here's a pic of my final outcome icon_smile.gif
