Tipping full price during happy hour?

Am I supposed to tip on the full, normal cost of meals and drinks during happy hour?

Recently went on a pub crawl during happy hour with a friend. She's a former server. When the bill came at a couple places, she told me that she always tips on what would've been the full cost of the food or drinks during non-happy hour times. I'd never heard of this before.
(For example, we went to a restaurant and ordered an appetizer that was normally $9 but was reduced to $5. She tipped on the $9.)
When I use coupons I'll base the tip on the full, non-coupon cost, but I've never done the same during happy hour. Am I supposed to? Do servers expect this?
