Happy Hallowe'en! OK OK, so Hallowe'en and weddings don't necessarily match (although there are those dress up weddings) but I thought we should honor the fun and festivities of the day. Although 'Italy' doesn't usually spring to mind when thinking Hallowe'en, this drink lends a sophisticated twist and would be perfectly at home at a fall wedding, with lots of orange tones.

Combine all the ingredients (except for licorice) in a pitcher. Mix. Pour into glasses, garnish with a stalk of licorice and enjoy!
