What did Lady Bird mean when she said, "1/4 cup vinegar"?

I want to make LBJ's barbecue sauce, but I'm not sure what kind of vinegar to use. It's likely that the stores that she shopped at in the 60s simply did not stock balsamic, apple cider, red wine, malt, raisin, coconut, and every other variety of vinegar under the sun. If you went to the store and asked, "vinegar, please" they would have given you....what?

I was going to use white vinegar for this recipe, but honestly I think of it more as a cleaning agent than an ingredient.
