Upping the alcohol content

yes depending on what type of sugar you are talking about. Also make sure your yeast can handle the higher alcohol.
I normally prime the beer with less sugar when making a higher alcohol beer 9%-10% because the sugar content when fermentation stops is higher than normal ie I can't get the yeast to ferment all the sugars in the carboy
