Win a case of wine to toast Eurovision champ
25 May 2012

To celebrate the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, we are giving away a case of mixed wine courtesy of Barefoot Wine.

All you have to do is send us the country you think will win Eurovision via our Twitter @gaystarnews, and if you are right you may be the lucky winner we will pick out of a hat on Monday (28 May).

Barefoot Wine has created a special ‘Light Your Fire’ cocktail in honor of the competition hosted in Baku, Azerbaijan on Saturday (26 May).

It is a perfect party drink that tastes like summer in a glass, even if your favorite gets ‘nul point’.

Here is the recipe to make your own ‘Light Your Fire’ cocktail:

  • 2 or 3 cups of Barefoot Moscato
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 to 4 shots of Tequila
  • 2 limes juiced
  • ¼ cups of fresh mango
  • Flaked salt

Add all the ingredients except the salt into a blender, and then blend at a medium high speed until smooth. Simply salt the rim of a serving glass and pour in the mixture. Scrumptious.

Gay-supportive brand Barefoot Wine is priced reasonably and the range includes Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and White Zinfandel.

Let us know your favorite Eurovision song this year on our Facebook page. Follow @gaystarnews on Twitter and keep an eye on GSN for the latest Eurovision news from our correspondents reporting live from Baku. Good luck!
