Footage shot in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal, shows a crowd of people drinking out in the open when a monkey wanders by.

The men are heard asking the primate if he would like to have a pint or two of the rum.

At first the monkey looks confused after smelling the drink, but then a little water is added to dilute the alcohol.

Much to the group’s surprise the monkey extends a hand to hold the disposable glass of rum and gulps it down like a pro.

But after the second go at the cup the creature becomes increasingly bewildered - but still reaches for more.

One of the men says on camera: "Friends, see how this monkey is drinking liquor."

The video was filmed last week and the man fuelling the animal's drinking habits can be seen taking selfie after selfie with the creature.
