An empty bottle of water

#1
Is it possible for there to be an empty bottle of water?

Like, by containing water, is a bottle defined as such even after the water is all gone?

It's a strange one this, I still refer to it as an empty bottle of water, whereas there isn't any water and should be defined as an empty water bottle.

What about the label though, if the label says water, would it not be an empty bottle of water.

If I use a bottle for holding water, I'll call it a water bottle. If it's empty, then it's an empty water bottle.

I'd never really thought about it but I suppose the sentance "An empty bottle of water" is technically incorrect. It can only be an "empty bottle", you could say "an empty bottle that used to contain water" though.
