Accepted Answer

Get the image into Photoshop, get an Adjustmentlayer over it, adjust it that the green part will be white:

Adjustment Layer

Get only the part which was green to be visible for the adjustment layer:

White Adjustment fill

To get there, use the Quick Selection Tool to select the green part of the Bottle.

quick selection tool Selected

Then inverse the selection to get everything else but the green part.

Inverse

Now (if not selected, select the Adjustmentlayer) and hit alt+backspace (on a mac) and the Adjustment Layer only applies to the white area, not the black one.

Cut out

Doubleklick on the Adjustment Layer to get to its settings. Set the controllers like in the image. Now it could look like that, with a little bit more tweaking its even better ;)
