Portion 1 Pint, and 1.5 Quart of water separately and put the 1.5 Qt of water into a fridge or freezer to chill.
Heat the remaining pint of water on the stove until simmering and add all brine ingredients. Stir until all sugar and salt has dissolved and remove from the stove.

Add chicken wings to a container and cover with the cooled brine, leave the chicken to brine for 12 hours.
