Alcoholic strength

Novice just started making ginger beer. The receipe calls for one cup of sugar ( 200gm or 0.44 lbs )approx to every 2 litres (3.5 UK pints [4.2 USA pints] of water.
Would anyone be able to give the *approximate* alcoholic strength by volume resulting from such a receipe? Thanks.

Complete conversion of 200g of table sugar yields 51g of ethanol. The density of ethanol is 0.789g/ml, so 200g sugar per liter will yield approximately 65 ml ethanol per liter, or about 6.5% v/v.
