Bloody Mary

I work for a liquor distributor and have a recurring problem with vodka & tomato juice. My coworkers and I cannot agree on the correct plural form of Bloody Mary. Help!

Bloody Marys (though after three or four, who cares?)

I have a recurring problem with Scotch and soda, but... uh, never mind. :)

yeah, Bloody Marys.

With proper nouns the -y remains unchanged and you just add an -s.
