Set up a double boiler by placing a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmering water. Make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl. Add the egg yolks, sugar, grapefruit juice and zest to the bowl and whisk until smooth. Continue whisking constantly for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the butter 1 tablespoon at a time until well combined. Strain through a fine mesh strainer.
Let cool, then place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before using.
