    The density of dry granulated sugar is close enough to the density of water that the choice of units doesn't matter. Pounds , kilograms, quarts, gallons, liters, measure the sugar and the water the same way and the result will be fine.

    It is also reported that you can take any convenient container, make a mark partway up the side, such as to leave headspace for stirring. Fill to the mark with sugar, Add hot water and stir, adding hot water as necessary until the solution is up to the mark. When finished the solution will be about two to one. This method depends on the fact that the sugar and water molecules fit together somewhat in the solution, and thus the volume of the solution is less than one would first guess.

    1 cup of sugar is 200g, and 1 cup of water is 225g. If you don't have a scale, just use a little over 2x sugar by volume. You'll be ok.
