felt just as good on nothing at all

The bottle of whiskey – a second one – was now in constant demand by all present, excepting Catherine, who “felt just as good on nothing at all,”
(F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby)

What is the meaning of the highlighted part?

    The whiskey was making the drinkers feel good. Catherine didn't want it because she already felt good, even though she hadn't drunk anything.
