To concoct 糟溜鱼片, what lone American alcoholic drink can substitute 米酒, 糟鹵, 花彫, 酒釀?

I travelled prior COVID. This Hong Kong restaurant served 糟溜鱼片. I am trying to reconstruct it at home. But my American town has no Asian stores, and nowhere sells the 3 Chinese wines listed below.

Undeniably, using 1 ingredient is simpler than 3 wines. Thus what SINGLE American alcoholic beverage can substitute these three Chinese wines?

http://www.misandao.net/1. Chinese Food/1.2 Seafood/WB008. FishFilletInWineSauce.htm itemizes 3 Chinese wines:

米酒(rice cooking wine) 1大匙 (tbsp)
上海老大同香糟卤(rice wine sauce) 75ml
酒酿(sweet rice wine) 2大匙 (tbsp)

And this chef itemizes 3 Chinese wines too.

糟鹵 50克
花彫 50克
酒釀 15克

The taste of rice wines is completely different from the tastes of fruit wines. There is no single US product that will work for all three of these.

However, in these days of the Internet, you should be able to purchase Chinese-made rice wines in many different styles online, unless your state forbids the delivery of alcohol. A summary of laws exists here:
