I have never heard of spiced white vinegar so I can not say for sure, but my instinct is to say that you could still use it. The dish will probably not taste the same, but it could still be good. You might just make a happy mistake

Oh that sounds quite tasty. Well since General Tso Chicken usually has similar flavors, I would say you would be safe using it.
