Diamond core bit F3 WILL do it, but its more expensive than an F2.

+1 by far the easiest for larger holes.

I have used an f2 in the past and it works quite well. Just go slowly without any rushes and with a not very fast spin speed, otherwise the bottle will crack. Also, try to use water and to wet the hole to lubricate the drill bit.

f2 and also use a lubricant like water to reduce friction and prevent from cracking, also be safe when doing this glass shards are sharper than steel razors
