"sky-blue" Definition

  1. London milk much diluted with water, or from which the cream has been too closely skimmed. “Hence, Suffolk dairy wives run mad for cream, And leave their milk with nothing but the name; Its name derision and reproach pursue, And strangers tell of three-times-skimm’d—SKY-BLUE.” _Bloomfield’s Farmer’s Boy._ The recent Adulteration Act has done away with SKY-BLUE, and made Simpson a relic of the past. SKY-BLUE formerly meant gin.
