Hi there, welcome to the forum.

You do not need a texture, only the right settings. Use the glass material from the browser and add the right refraction amount. You could also change the color a bit to blue.

Post your results!

You can't get identical results from different renderers. Personally I think that second render is rather unrealistic. 

It doesn't look much like a 3d render and I've actually seen better from Photoshop. 

Nick has shown you some of the things you can do with Podium, but he's not going to do your work for you

Its not frosty, its reflecting the environment.  Those are probably the best settings, but you have to work on the what's around to make it look like you want. The only difference between the image you just posted is that there is a bright light reflecting on the right side. You can do that with a closed box with holes or LEMs.In fact there's lots of possibilities here!
