Mix 5 parts Portland Cement with 1 part General Purpose sand.

Add water to get a "clumpy mix" and pack.

4 to 5 parts sand to 1 part portland cement. Mix to the consistency of wet beach sand. When you can make a sand ball, its wet enough. If it looks anything like normal wet concrete or thinset or whatever, it is WAY too wet.
