After schucking a bunch of extra-large oysters, I have an extra-large cup of oyster liquor. What should I do with it?

So I recently discovered that it is oyster season here in Paris and I can get tons of oysters for !@#$ing cheap. I bought a baker's dozen of Fines de Claires No. 2, which are big-ass oysters with a lot of tasty, tasty liquor. I was smart enough to shuck them over a bowl, so I managed to catch any of the liquor that I spilled during shucking. After eating all of the oysters and the juice that remained in their shells, I was left with a large bowl filled with oyster liquor. What should I do with this delicious salty substance? (the oyster liquor, that is, you fiilthy person)
After letting the grit settle to the bottom, I came up with two ideas:
1. tomato juice + oyster juice + vodka + hot sauce = bloody caesar, sorta.
2. use instead of stock to deglaze a pan of sautéed winter vegetables.
Both were great, but I still have about 500ml of the stuff to use. Any suggestions?
