If you don’t want to do environmental mapping you could always use raytraced mirror with a noise texture. Here’s a link on ray-traced mirror/transparency:

Note: if you do ray-traced mirror you have to make sure that something other than the sky is being reflected or you will not see any results. Good luck.
