If one were to add wine to the precious blood, what would happen?

Question:

If one were to add wine to the precious blood, what would happen? Is it somehow less precious blood per volume? Is the wine consecrated by contact, or does it cease to be precious blood at all?

Answer:

Adding unconsecrated wine to the Eucharist does not result in wine being mixed with wine but wine being mixed with blood. After the consecration, any wine poured into a chalice containing the precious blood would not by that fact become the blood of Christ. It would still be wine, even though this would not be visible to the eye. It would also be a sacrilegious act.
