A question about a recipe: Crema di Limoncello - Limoncello Milk Liqueur

I have a question about step 6 on the recipe "Crema di Limoncello - Limoncello Milk Liqueur" from Maria Teresa Jorge. It says:

"Remove the vanilla pod and sieve through a fine sieve covered with gauze.
Mix the milk mixture with the lemon / alcohol mixture.
Using a funnel, fill bottles previously washed and sterilized with boiling water.
Close the bottles and put in a dark and cool place for 15 days.

"Would a "dark and cool place" be the refrigerator? My apartment is not the coolest lately.

Thanks so much for your recipes. I'd like to try this one on my friend who loves limoncello.

Hi Hope, yes, the refrigerator is OK.
In Italy we use cellars for this sort of process but an underground garage would also do. Lacking any of these options then the refrigerator will do.
I would only add a sugestion: as in the refrigerator it will be exposed to light, everytime you open it, I would rap the bottle in aluminium foil.
Hope you like you Crema di Limoncello!
Salute e a presto!
