If you absolutely cannot get your hands on fresh grapefruits, you can use bottled. I'd recommend using either Simply Grapefruit, or Trader Joe's Villa Italia grapefruit soda.
Alternatively, you can make this drink non-alcoholic by simply eliminating the tequila and triple sec and replacing it with some lime or grapefruit seltzer.
