I know that the there is some small capacitance between the windings of an axial inductor lets say, but how does one measure this? The inductor is a short on an LCR meter...

You can also use a DMM + Vector Impedance Meter to characterize the inductor's LCR values.

Increase the frequency until the coil is capacitive. From the frequency where the behaviour changes, you can deduce the capacitance  provided the inductance stays constant, far from granted.
