Cooking for alcoholics: how do you substitute for wine-based vinegars?

Eminbklyn | Jun 30, 201110:29 AM     38

If you're following a total avoidance of alcohol, how do you get around the need for red-wine vinegar, white-wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, etc.? I am planning to make a Spanish sopa de ajo blanco, and can't imagine what to use instead of the sherry vinegar. The only vinegars I can think of that are not derived from something alcoholic are rice vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar -- either too bland or too flavorful to substitute for wine vinegars.

Or do you think the vinegars are alcohol-free enough to not cause a problem for an alcoholic?
