Confession time: I have always disliked tomato juice. Many years passed without trying it again until recently when my husband asked me to buy it for him at the grocery store and I saw how much sodium is in it! I was totally shocked and came home without the tomato juice and to a disappointed husband. I decided to use my Magic Bullet to make it from scratch and found that it is much easier to control the amount of sodium you put in this way. After my first try, I found the tomato juice to be a little bland, so I added a dash of cayenne pepper to spice things up a bit. Be careful not to overdo it and make it too spicy!
