4 oz of sugar in 3 liters isn't much additional sugar. I usually get a 1.050 reading from my apple juice alone, so I would guess the sugar only added a few points to it, maybe somewhere in the 1.053 region. Given that your cider will ferment to almost dry, probably around 1.008, you would end up with a roughly 6% abv cider.

Question about cheap hydrometers...I bought a cheap one ($5.25) triple scale..when I put it in the hydrometer jar with cider it doesn't stand quite straight, which makes it difficult to read. Is this a case of "you get what you pay for"?
