Rice Wine

My Mom just got home from the hospital and wants me to make her Wonton soup. My little liquor store here does not have Rice wine. What are some other options? Please and thank you.

Good luck and welcome home to your mom! I think any vinegar, maybe diluted a bit, would work.

You local supermarket should have rice vinegar in the International aisle or with the other vinegars. You can cut it with a bit of water.

The standard substitution for rice wine is dry sherry.

You're a good daughter, and welcome home to your mom.

Are you looking for rice wine (Sake) or rice wine vinegar? The latter can be found in a grocery store. To me there's no real substitution for rice wine vinegar, sometimes just called rice vinegar.

Yup, that should work.

Rice Wine

Heh. I read rice wine as rice wine vinegar. Yes, rice wine is sake.

Remember Laugh-In? "It may be rice wine to you, but it's sake to me!"
