would the juice of a blood orange work in a pinch if no grapefruit juice is handy?

Most blood oranges are much sweeter than grapefruits, without the bitterness, and with a full orange flavor accented with raspberry. Substituting blood orange for grapefruit could still make a good drink, though you might want to add a bit of lemon to offset the sugar.
