It probably won't taste the same. And with this type vinegar, I wouldn't buy the cheapest available, but that's just my opinion!

In a pinch, maybe try apple cider vinegar, but never tried myself...

Probably doesn't help, but for future reference, a cider or even basalmic will be fine, just add enough sugar to tone down the acidity.

I would say cider vinegar would be the closest match, with a little sugar or honey. But I really like rice vinegar and suggest you get some for your pantry!
