Leftover zucchini water can be stored in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Unfiltered sake has a smooth floral flavor, and it's a great match with gin. The mild cucumberlike flavor of zucchini will give you an elegant, beautiful cocktail your guests will talk about for weeks. If you really want to go all out, float a tiny organic orchid blossom in it for an extra special event.
