Default Frosted Cup with Text

I am trying to make a frosted cup with some text on it, but I am having a lot of trouble. On the frosted cup the text would have to be see through and the cup would have to remain frosted. Anyone have any ideas on how to approach this? Any good idea on a shader for frosted glass?
