Flavoring Choices for Royal Icing

I'm out of lemon juice and I need a substitute. It doesn't have to be a citrus, but it got me thinking about other flavorings I could use?  What do you all use? Are there some that should not be used that may break down the icing?

Peace, Love and Cookies,

Kelly, I have the Lorann Butter Vanilla emulsion too, but noticed on the ingredients list it states  as the last ingredient "partially hydrogenated soybean oil".   I was worried the "oil" would interfere with the royal icing setting/hardening.  Do you use it in your royal icing?  Thank you, Elizabeth )

I have been using it in my Royal Icing for years now and have had no problems at all.  I use 2 tbsp. and the icing sets up beautifully!  I have heard that minuscule amounts of oil aren't too much of a problem in RI that uses meringue powder as opposed to fresh egg whites or even powdered egg whites.  Hope that helps you.
