Default Should I top it up?

My hard lemonade is just about done fermenting, it's at 1.000.

When it's done I would like to add some clearing agent to help it clear faster. I will rack it off the lees first.

Before I add the clearing agent, I would gather that it's important to top it up first. What do you suggest I use to top it up?

The same type of lemonade you fermented would be my recommendation, it will add sweetness back to it, because my understanding is that a a SG of 1.000, it's pretty dry.
