Make sure to really decide on the amount of sugar you want to add.  If you have a sweet tooth, add it all,  It really tastes amazing!  If you want, you can totally dial it back so it is very subtle.
Transfer any leftovers into an airtight container and put in the fridge. It should stay good to go for up to 3-4 days. For longer storage, you can even freeze it for up to 2-3 months; just make sure to thaw it in the fridge overnight before reheating.
