  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add leeks, onion, salt, black pepper, white pepper, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and slightly golden, about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in potatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until potatoes are falling apart, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes. Using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth. If desired, pass through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any remaining chunks. Stir in half-and-half and ice, then transfer to the refrigerator to chill until cold.
  4. Divide soup among bowls. Top with a dollop of sour cream and chives, if using.
