Posted in request for this recipe; the recipe is originally from a friend of my grandmother McElderry. An old recipe, the original called for use of ice cube trays (the ones w/ the metal insert for the cubes) to make this. It's a long-time family favorite and wonderful in the summer... so light and cool! (The can sizes are a guess; I have neither in the house right now to check. Both are given in the recipe as the "large" size.)
