Making Limoncello at Home

I'm making limoncello for the first time. There are a lot of recipes online that call for 2 bottles of Everclear or vodka. I used 1 bottle of Everclear 190 proof. I'm wondering if anyone has advice on how much sugar to water I should use when making the simple syrup.

It seems like most recipes get the limoncello down to 70-80 proof. In that case, I'd need 4-4.5 cups of water. A 1:1 ratio seems like it would be too sweet. Any experience here?
