    • The above measurements are American: so for those who are from the UK who don't use cups apart from porcelain for coffee or tea; here are the UK measures: 475 mls of water 240 grams of granulated sugar 15 grams ground ginger 5 grams ground cinnamon 5 mls vanilla extract. Just to add american teaspoons are slightly more than UK measurements, roughly 5 grams each teaspoon (US), but then you might like the extra ginger etc...
