I don't mean to be rude or anything, but why would you want to light up a bottle?
Instead of asking why, shouldn't we asking why not :)
i say that all the time.

Well my younger brother and I have been toying with the idea of using Tonic water and a UV LED to make the bottle glow (the tonic water has Quinine in it which apperently under UV light glows) So you could do something like that for halloween but I think a bright glowing red would look better on a hot sauce bottle than a sort of glowing green.

i like the UV idea i might try that

As stated LEDs would be great. One step further: some bottles, glass or plastic are UV active. Using UV LEDs would surely make great decorations, especially for Holloween.
what I would do is drill holes in the tops of the bottles, then string them togeather with those little colorful christmas lights. mahe about 2 strings of em' 10 ft. long maybe. Then turn the whole operation upside down and press the tops into the dirt along the edges of your sidewalk/driveway etc.

What kind of bulb is that?

You could modernise this a bit. Lose the huge battery box for some little lithium batteries, and swap the bulb for an LED, then put the whole lot inside the cap. A resistor will keep the voltage dropped far enough for the LED to be happy (see http://led.linear1.org/1led.wiz for a calculator to determine the value) and with a bit of fiddling you could have it so the light comes on only when the cap is screwed on, by having the resistor and LED legs right over by the edge and sprung slightly.

For more efficiency, use a solar cell and a capacitor!
The first thing that popped into my head was making party lights by stringing together those miniature plastic alcohol bottles and lighting them all up.
