FYI, 180 is a bit low unless measuring in metric. 255F would be close. Now if I can just figure out which "glass" to use for the sugar. This sounds so tasty, I want to try it.

So, standard cold drink glass in Europe is 200ml, if my calculator is correct it should be 7.039 fl oz, or 6.7628 American oz
