Grapefruit zest in lieu of lemon zest?

queueueuq | | Jul 1, 2012 01:09 PM

I was about to make some shortbread raspberry tarts when I discovered I'm out of lemons! The filling calls for lemon zest. I do have grapefruit on hand -- would grapefruit zest be an acceptable substitute or would it be too bitter, perhaps? I'm guessing it's safe but just thought I'd check in case there's something I'm overlooking.
