Did you know that birth order is commonly believed to have a profound and lasting effect on psychological development? Do you have a middle sister and agree? I always hear things about the first child, the middle child or the youngest and how your birth order effects your personality.  Today’s post is a fun one for me because I get to talk about my middle sister, Jenni.  I am the oldest of three girls, with Jenni being the middle.  It just so happens that she is also turning 30 years old in July.  A few weeks ago we went to the Outer Banks as a family and I got to celebrate early with her and the family.

While we were in the Outer Banks we shared my favorite Middle Sister Wine together, the Sweet and Sassy Moscato that we paired with a Watermelon Mango Salsa .  Have you tried Middle Sister wines? The Middle Sister brand is based on a series of quirky “middle sister” characters who each claim their own varietal and personality. The various sisters are engaging and entertaining. Their wines are fun and are based off of different middle sister personality traits like Wild One Malbec and Smarty Pants Chardonnay.

Middle Sister Wines

I bet if you have a middle sister there is a wine on their list that describes your sister perfectly, or if you are a middle sister maybe you would claim one as your own.  These wines are crafted by award-winning winemaker Nancy Walker (a middle sister herself), the portfolio includes a wide variety of delicious red, white and sparkling wines from California and Argentina.  The Middle Sister brand is based on a series of quirky “middle sister” characters who each claim their own varietal and personality. The various sisters are engaging and entertaining.

My sister Jenni is a lot like the Sweet and Sassy Moscato that we shared together in the Outer Banks.  She is very sweet but also very sassy.  We always have fun together and I can count on her for anything.  I was so excited in December when we moved back to Cleveland where I live less than 15 minutes from her and her family. We get to share appetizers and wine on a pretty regular basis now.

We enjoyed the Sweet and Sassy Moscato on the deck alongside this Watermelon Mango Salsa.

The sweetness of the wine and the salsa went great together.  This wine has aromas and flavor of white peaches, citrus and honeysuckle. It their sweetest wine, yet it’s well-balanced and refreshing. If you are looking for a salsa to make this summer to serve at a party, or your 4th of July BBQ this Watermelon Mango Salsa is it. It mixes fresh watermelon, mango,  cucumber, red onion, fresh mint and lime juice.  You can serve this salsa alongside tortilla or pita chips but make sure you get a little first because this stuff goes fast.  You can also make a big batch and save some to use as a topping for fish tacos.

You can find Middle Sister Wines in most Targets (where alcohol is available for purchase). Look for Middle Sister’s new brand makeover that features “Drops of Wisdom” which are a dose of inspiration right on the front label.

No middle sister in my family, but that wine is still too cute! Love the sweet salsa recipe, too - so versatile.

I actually studied the birth order in college, wrote a series of papers around it (because my experience is the complete opposite of the common indicators, ha!). interesting stuff, indeed!

and the salsa! yes! this looks so fresh - "watermelon time" is something I look forward to every summer!
