Try two things to see if it helps.
1. Set white balance to Cloudy
2. -0.7 EV

Sunlight at day's end is going thru a lot more air/moisture/clouds and the WB setting will give a better rendering of the sky. Adjusting the exposure value will also help when shooting into sunlit sky. It's a quick fix that may help in your quest. Works well as a starting point for me when I'm shooting out over the Pacific at sunset. Shooting Raw and adjusting white balance later is also a good option. Good luck!
