Mirin and Sake sub for Chicken Wings

walker | Sep 10, 201604:09 PM     18

I saw Andrew Zimmern make Grandmother's Chinese Chicken Wings on The Best Thing I Ever Made and now I'm dying for them.

http://www.theeggfarm.com/blog/2015/1...

I posted the recipe from the above blog because other recipes on-line don't include water and I saw him use water on the show!

Anyway, it calls for 3 Tablespoons mirin and 1/3 cup sake, which I don't have and don't want to run out and buy this unless I'm going to make the recipe repeatedly. I do have Shao Xing Rice Wine (unopened bottle, can't remember what recipe I bought it for!) and vodka.

Do you think it's necessary for me to buy mirin and sake? If so, any brand recommendations?
