White wine or Champagne vinegar can be substituted. In a pinch, you could also use white vinegar, although the flavor will be more pronounced.

White wine vinegar would be the best choice, IMO.

Rice vinegar is usually called for in a recipe because it's lower in acid and very mild in flavor.

Plain old white vinegar is really harsh and acidic.

Fatima you got some good advice but unless you are using just a very small amount of vinegar, there really is not a good sub for rice vinegar in my opinion. As Jenny said, it's lower in acid and very mild in flavor, unlike other vinegars.

I am with you on that Kayelle. I have only two vinegars. Rice and apple cider. The white is for cleaning glass or the coffee maker.
