The pint-sized Jersey Shore spitfire appeared on The Tonight Show Monday, where host Jay Leno asked her about her nixed appearance inside the Times Square ball (she eventually rang in 2011 in a ball MTV constructed for her to drop in).
"I guess Times Square didn't want me, so they put me back in the ball and hamstered me to Jersey," she joked. "I guess they didn't want two balls competing with each other."
"I know how it is," Leno quipped, before asking her if she got drunk on New Year's.
"Oh hell yeah," Snooki said. "I had like two cups of vodka cause I was nervous."
Snooki --- who was arrested last summer on a public drinking charge -- then proceeded to make a "Snooki cocktail" to share with Leno, consisting of two Corona beers dumped upside down into a large Margarita glass. She said she usually drinks a dozen, on average, when she parties.
