Default adding watermelon juice at bottling

Need help determining how much priming sugar to add. I'll be adding 2 cups of watermelon juice for 5 gallons of beer at bottling and don't want any bottle bombs. I know most people add it to the secondary but I ran out of carboys (I brew to damn much ). If anyone can help, please let me know, thanks!

This site says 15g of sugar per cup of watermelon juice. So two cups is about an ounce. You might want to supplement with some sugar.
