This drink keeps for a long time; just like other milk based liqueurs (ie. Baileys, Kahlua). I prefer to keep mine in the freezer or the fridge just out of preference

This is great. Very easy to make but it does make alot and since it's largely milk, you need to be sure to have some drinkers around!

I had creamy limoncello at an Italian restaurant, and was told it was a secret family recipe. I decided I MUST find the recipe! Here it was! Thank you! It turned out just like the restaurant version! I made a batch before Christmas, as gifts, and for us. We finished ours in late February (kept in fridge) and it was just as good as it was in December. Do be sure to buy organic lemons, so you won't have pesticides on the zest.

This is delicious and so easy. Much cheaper than buying creamy limoncello too. All the adults at my party enjoyed this drink. Thanks for the posting. Don't know how long it will last in the refrigerator, but if you freeze it, you will have it for a good long time.

This recipe came out wonderful! Now, it's just putting them into pretty , decorative bottles.

This was good and I definitely would make again. The lemons I used were really large so I used 6 instead of 8. It was still too bitter so I added about a cup of half and half because that's all I had. That did the trick. Next time I definitely would use smaller lemons and add whole milk or half and half for some of the milk.
