Rather than mix anti freeze you might be best doing a full drain, flush and refill.

Why do you want to drain out water and put antifreeze in? The mixture should have been added in at a 50:50 mix when being replaced, so shouldn't need just an antifreeze topup

For the cost of it I'd do a full flush and 50% refill if it were me. It wouldn't take more than half hour.
