White wine or vermouth and a little sugar. Or just go ahead with whatever you're doing and add a little sugar.

Other possibilities, a sherry that is not dry, and for the vermouth, the sweet version. The key to mirin is that it is a sweet rice wine. It is probably used in small quantities, so substitution won't mean disaster.
