Yeah that's what it said. or mix 250ml sugar with 50g glucose. I had sugar syrup so I've been lightly adding it. The last premix I had was way too sweet for the misses so I'm going up slowly cap fills at a time till I get the sweetness correct. If this fails im giving up with coconut rum it's just a bottle for something different for the misses it's not her fav drink ~x(

I'm not sure if it is available in Australia but I tried the Liquor Quik one last year mixed with some vodka that we bought on sale that was too harsh to drink!!! it turned out really well. Misses loved it but had I to cut back on the sugar, slowly adding until it was right. If I remember it was about 3/4 of what they recommended on the bottle.

My problem too bought a premix called mac's coconut rum im sure no affiliation to mr and mrs mac. It was so sweet it was sickly it got restilled. Thats the only saving grace bad mixes dont get wasted but the money is still spent
