-Using the bike pump, pump quickly into the bottle several times and observe under the IR camera. By the ideal gas law, if pressure increases under constant volume, then temperature must increase.
don't forget to release the pressure afterwards. If the seal on the nozzle starts to become lousy, use some vacuum grease.
The temperature change is evident on the outside (and cooling when pressure releases). It may be interesting to see the effect on the Infrared Camera
