Summertime Lemonade - makes 1 quart pitcher

After trying Martha Stewart's lemonade recipe, I went to mom's Woman's Home Companion Cook Book from the '40's.
She would make this for my dad when he got home from work on really hot days.
The old recipe book helps me with all sorts of house keeping things such as table settings.
The introduction in the Woman's Home Companion was advice for the war effort. "We must serve our families nutritious meals even though we might not have rations of sugar and meat. A healthy nation is the best contribution our homes can make to our war effort."
This brings back wonderful memories of my family back in the 50's and I serve this lemonade to my B&B guests.
