Chocolate Pumpkin Cocktails

I didn't realize that there are so many pumpkin liqueurs on the market at this time of year.  Check out DrinkoftheWeek.com for a review of pumpkin liquors.  Of course, pumpkin needs chocolate, so I put together three recipes for Chocolate Pumpkin Cocktail recipes for Halloween. These can be served all through the Fall. But you knew that, right? The first two recipes call for Pumpkin Liqueur, but the last one uses other liqueurs and some pumpkin spice.

CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN COCKTAIL

3 oz Pumpkin Liqueur
Chocolate (melted)

Shake the pumpkin liqueur with ice in a cocktail shaker.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Slowly add melted chocolate to the glass.
