I started drinking tomato juice when I realised how low in sugar it is compared to other fruit juices. And Bloody Mary is the perfect accompaniment to a weekend brunch – especially with poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. This version packs a flavour punch, without the booze, and counts as one of your 5 A DAY.
