Score the bottle. To create the line that the bottle will break off at, use a glass cutter or a glass drill bit to score a line. If you want, you can use a support system so that you get a perfect line around the bottle, otherwise you can just freehand it.
Heat the bottle. Heat the line that you made with the glass cutter. You can use a small candle or a small butane torch. Focus the heat directly along the score line, and constantly rotate the bottle to get even coverage.
Dip the bottle in cold water. When you have spent around 5 minutes heating the bottle, dip the end you are breaking off in cold water. Do this in a sink or pot full of cold water, with optional ice.
Repeat the process. The bottle might require more stress than a single round of heating and cooling in order to break. Simply repeat the process of heating the bottle and dipping it in cold water until it snaps.
Sand the edges. Use a rough square of sandpaper to clean off the edges of the glass. As you remove any sharp points, alternate to a finer grit sandpaper. You should do this as soon as you are finished, to avoid cutting yourself.
Enjoy your cleanly broken bottle. Use the bottle to store pens, drink out of, or make a pretty vase. The options are endless!
