I give [my guests] a little sip of the coconut water then add a little rum. It's very refreshing and it's a good party trick." 02 of 08 Jenna Ushkowitz Todd Williamson/WireImage "I'm a big fan of some homemade guacamole. Lime and cilantro are the key ingredients. And you can't make guacamole without a mortar and pestle!" 03 of 08 James Marsden Joseph Gotfriedy/Broadimage "The mint julep is my southern summer drink and we make burgers and hot dogs on the grill. We're sort of old school that way." 04 of 08 Camilla Belle Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic "I make a lemon tart. My friends always beg for it during the summer. It's a Barefoot Contessa recipe-I swear by her cookbooks!" 05 of 08 Chris Colfer Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic "I make very good vegan macaroni and cheese, but I use real milk and cheese so I guess it's not really vegan." 06 of 08 Jordana Brewster Victor Chavez/WireImage "I love paella. The presentation is beautiful and you get to share it. I serve it with mojitos." 07 of 08 Isaac Mizrahi Amy Sussman/Getty "Homemade mint-chocolate ice cream with mint from my garden. It makes me scream with pleasure!" 08 of 08 Cat Cora Nancy Kaszerman/ZUMA "I do a whole grill party where I get everybody outside and put everything on the grill. I cook lamb chops on the grill with my special chimichurri sauce."
