Default Kegging cider with added dissolved sugar/juice

I'm adding dissolved sugar/juice at the end of fermentation....along with potassium sorbate of course...my question is...since the dissolved sugar/juice is more dense than the finished/fermented cider...the dissolved sugar/juice at the end 'seems' to sink to the bottom when kegging. The first few pours are considerably sweeter than the rest. Is there any way to avoid or circumvent this aside from rolling a corny down the driveway to mix it back up?

I'd purge the keg with CO2 and shake it. If you get it shaken up good the first time, it shouldn't separate out again.

I do this all of the time. I purge the CO2 a couple of times a day in the first few days after kegging and while it is pushing the CO2 back in I shake the keg. It has worked everytime for me and it gets carbonated a little faster.
