Seawater has a lower freezing point than normal water, so adding salt would mean that the temperature of the ice solution could be below freezing.

The second place was taken by the same method – but without salt. The temperature of the beer dropped by 16.6 °C in 30 minutes.

You can also try air cooling: wrap the bottle in a wet cloth and place it in a shallow container of water. The container should be in a well-ventilated area so that the water evaporates and cools the bottle. This method reduced the temperature by 3.3 °C in 30 minutes.
