Can you give me some examples of some savoury liquids I could use?

@ JMB: as long as you freeze your liquid, it should work. So pure tequila at 40% won't freeze but if you dilute it with soda (ie shweeps, sprite, 7up...) and then freeze it, no problem.

Can we change the lemon juice for another liquid ? I'm thinking that would be cool to adapt the recipe and make tequila shots...
