I haven't tried this yet, but am posting it before I lose the recipe I found. I can't use wines and beers and other alcoholic drinks and have been using white vinegar or rice vinegar in place of japanese mirin in my japanese cooking. But I found this recipe and maybe I can cook some italian or french recipes that call for wine.


  1. put both ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
  2. keep refrigerated till ready for use.

I also dont use any alcoholic products because of religious reasons, so I try to research ingredients before consuming. I just wanted to include what I have found on rice vinegar...rice vinegar is made from the alcoholic and acetic fermentation of sugars derived from rice or concentrated rice without being distilled.

I've used this many times and it works really well. Thanks for the recipe.

If the issue at hand is alcoholism, this would be an excellent substitute in that there would be no wine leftover in the house to drink. One of the key factors as well as the idea that the taste of alcohol is in the dish itself, giving the temptations rise. So, as far as that goes, I'm willing to try it when cooking for people who have problems with drinking.
