You're right, I should have asked. I most often use sherry in stir-fry, so that's what I had in mind.

I would use sherry vinegar with a bit of sugar.

Just a guess, but I'll wager someone without Sherry also wouldn't have sherry vinegar, or Vermouth for that matter.

Was just going to say the same thing. I never think to buy those items, and end up leaving it out if a new recipe calls for it.

I wouldn't have Vermouth, but would have a variety of vinegars, including sherry vinegar. I realizes I didn't have fresh lemon today. I yuzu vinegar, lemon vinegar, and sumac. For fun, I went with the yuzu.

With all due respect CWS, I don't have a clue what your talking about. Lemons I get.

If you had followed her threads, you would recall that for almost a year she was experimenting in making all flavors of vinegars. Blueberries, apples, lemons, etc. Even veggie vinegars. Her favorite one is the chocolate vinegar she made from scratch. So she is stating what vinegars she would use in place of the sherry.
