Not the same thing but you can usually sub one for the other, depending on what you're making. Give us some more details and we'll let you know.

Not quite the same, but instead you can uses splash of ouzo or Pernod.

I tried it. It was a good substitution in this case. Thanks. I made Cioppino. There was some white wine in the broth--it would be interesting to try with Ouzo.
