I've found the best way to mitigate too much vinegar is adding salt and/or sugar.  Depending on how much vinegar, usually 1 TBSP of sugar will do the trick.  Be careful with adding too much salt, or for that matter too much sugar.

Adding a bit of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) can help by removing some of the acid.  Use a little at a time (you can always add more).
