I've done this with beer, and it does work.
I don't know about cider, but with beer if you pour dextrose right on top of it you get an eruption. Basically you have less than 3s to put the sugar in and recap or you'll get a little volcano action
I'd be curious to know if you get a similar effect with your cider.
Be careful how much sugar you put of course. For my beer I basically eyeball it, I have this small coffee spoon I use to measure it. Not really sure how much that actually is, maybe roughly a teaspoon per bottle?
