Rhubarb gel

The bitterness of the grapefruit juice makes the acidity of the rhubarb come out more subtle.
There are many different types of rhubarb, often green on the inside, but there are also varieties that are red through and through. You can always add a little bit of beet juice to make your rhubarb extra red.
