This makes 2:1 mix trivial.
Mix one 4lb bag with one quart of water - done (you got yourself 2:1 mix).

For larger amounts - multiply quantities proportionally.
Back to your question - I would just keep adding sugar incrementally and stir until dissolved.
Then maybe add more.
In fact, just feeding 1:1 as it is - a total non-issue (remember, today is July 31st and still a deep summer yet).
You can feed them 1.5:1, 1.7:1, 1.35:1, 1.98:1, .......... - it does not matter what you feed.
Unsure why the hang-up.
