Lee also shared a recipe for sugar plum punch to serve to holiday guests.
The punch, which serves 12 to 16 people, is made with one gallon softened vanilla ice cream, one cup bourbon, two tablespoons vanilla extract and one teaspoon ground cinnamon.
To make the punch, working in two batches, combine half the ice cream, bourbon, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender and process until smooth. Pour the first batch into a punch bowl and repeat for a second batch.
