No vacuum is created. Liquid will not flow out unless air bubble goes inside and equals the atmospheric pressure. (Unless one is taking about a bottle talker than the barometric height, about 1 meter if the liquid is mercury.) The bottle opening does not come into the picture. A wider opening makes it easier for the air bubble to enter.
