The Whipped Sunset is a drink that is a perfect vehicle for a dessert-flavored vodka, namely Whipped Cream. Smirnoff's foray into whipped cream flavored vodka 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 stunning for the eyes as the drink itself is to the taste buds. What is most interesting about the Whipped Sunset is how the whipped cream and pineapple flavors complement each other and are bound in a sweet and sour way with the similarly contrasting sour mix and grenadine.
A heaping garnish of whipped cream may be a little much for some, so if you prefer, begin with a small dollop or forgo it all together. Alternatively, you may want to play with flavored whipped creams for the garnish -- a floral or herbal addition would go nicely with the fruitiness of the drink.
- Pour the ingredients (except grenadine) into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
- Shake well.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
- Top with grenadine (it will sink) and garnish with whipped cream.
