Default water to corn sugar ratio when bottling

I am bottling a Saison and the temp of the Beer is 76 and it is a 5g batch. Brew tools and Beer Smith state that I am to use 6 oz of corn sugar. So how much water do I use when boiling the corn sugar?

I use around a liter, works for me everytime
Primary 1: Canadian Pale Ale
Primary 2: American Stout
Primary 3: Empty
Primary 4: Empty
Bottled: IPA,Belgian Wit, Pale ale,Stout, Sour beer.
Planning: Janets Brown, Northern German Alt, Arrogant bastard Clone+ more yummy beers
I only take a drink on two occasions - when I'm thirsty and when I'm not.

I've never measured it but I use about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water to make my priming syrup.
