The Whipped Sunset is a fun drink that shows off one of the new dessert-flavored vodkas. The flavor is Smirnoff's Whipped Cream and it is the base for this tasty mix of fruits.

Similar in fashion to the Tequila Sunrise, this drink uses grenadine to create a layered effect that is as visually stunning as the drink is pleasing to the taste buds. What is most interesting about the Whipped Sunset is how the whipped cream and pineapple flavors work with each other and are bound in a sweet and sour way with the similarly contrasting sour mix and grenadine.

One note I have regarding this is that a heaping garnish of whipped cream may be a little much for some people. If you prefer, begin with a small dollop or forgo it all together. Also, you may want to play with flavored whipped creams for the garnish as is suggested by Kyle Branche in Whip That Groove. I would suggest a floral or herbal addition to compliment the fruitiness of the drink.
