6. shake it for at least 3 seconds or until the sugar dissolves completely. it will definitely take 30 seconds or more.

7. pour it on to the glass and drop ice cubes in it. I prefer adding ice cubes after we shake else it may break into small pieces and may cause disturbance while drinking. also when you shake vigorously, ice cubes may cause scratches on a glass jar.
