I want to make a garlic aioli as a sauce for a burger, however, I do not have any lemons nor lemon juice on hand. I also don't have any limes. However, I do have white, apple cider, and rice vinegars. Which of these, if any, would make the best substitution for lemon juice in garlic aioli?

    Side note, but "garlic aioli" is a tautology. All aiolis contain garlic. Apr 21, 2022 at 6:19

    In fact, aioli comes from "all-i-oli" in catalan that means literally "garlic and oil", so it's redundant @ViktorMellgren

Any vinegar will work, and is simply going to be a matter of taste. I see some recipes online that call for 2 tablespoons per 3 egg yolks. You can adjust from there. Here is one example.
