Place ice into a cocktail shaker. Add the amaretto, vodka, and cream. Shake vigorously. Pour into a short cocktail glass (Ice optional). Top with a pinch of nutmeg. If you like your cocktail a little bit sweeter, like I do, stir in a little simple syrup to taste.
*Note: To make simple syrup, add equal parts water and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the syrup is hot and the sugar has completely dissolved. Cool and store in the refrigerator in a covered container.
