Kinda depends on if 1:1 is by weight or volumn.
Using a cup of each is going to give you a 1:1 by volumn and 1 lb sugar to 1 pint of water will give you 1:1 by weight. I used by weight and bees seem to be liking it.

My Grandmother used to say: "A pint's a pound the world around."  Meaning that in the case of most cooking ingredients (ie Sugar & Water) the volume and weight are the same.  A pint of water will weigh 1 lb.  1 lb of sugar will fill a pint jar.  Neat, Huh?
