Hello and welcome!
I have never known anyone to use anything other than just plain sugar for making syrup. I just buy the 5lb bags at the grocery.
Best of luck with the bees.

Call Me stupid, but what do I mix in volume for a 1/1 mix or a 2/1 mix. I do not know what a liter of granulated sugar weighs. I think in the metric system. Thanks.:)

Use regular granulated sugar for your syrup. Icing sugar is used as a dusting to help control varroa mites.
