Mirin labeled "cooking wine"

First- I live in a state that doesn't sell real wine in grocery stores.

I know you're not supposed to cook with wine labeled "cooking wine," which is all grocery stores here carry. So far, that's the only place I've seen Mirin. Is that ok, or should I try to find it in a liquor store? I only plan on using it for cooking, not drinking.
