What is the type of recipe? (marinade, cocktail, stir-fry, etc. ?) I would say mirin or maybe vodka but more information will help.

It is to steam kabocha squash with white miso and a touch of sesame oil.

Yum, white miso and sesame oil! I think mirin would work well if you have it and if you don't I think the sake could be skipped altogether. Maybe the tiniest pinch of white sugar would replace that trace of sugars but not necessary.
