Thank you, Kerry.  How about either Aveze or Salers, since they are not hard to get?

Don't know the answer to that - Suze is the only one I've had (we can get it in Quebec quite easily).  I saw a bottle of Salers one trip to the states - but I was already over my limit for what I could bring back.

I think both are a little lighter than Suze which has a prominent bitter finish to me, although I know some bartenders who think Salers is similar and maybe even more bitter than Suze. All palates are different! Then again the US bottling of Suze is supposedly slightly different than Suze in Europe (definitely a slightly different proof. 30pf in Europe while the Suze Saveur d’Autrefois that is imported here is 40pf. Don't have the European Suze so can't say with certainty how different it is. So not sure how either of those might work as a substitute.

 

What part of Jersey are you in? The imported Suze is pretty common here in Atlanta so I would be surprised if you couldn't find it reasonably near you. NY has it and I would think Philly would certainly seem likely to have it. DUNY carries it (although they currently appear to be out of stock) and I would guess they would ship to NJ.

For us today: Punt e Mes, maraschino liqueur and Appleton 12 - all replacing dwindling supplies. Would have got Cynar too, but my favourite place has been out for two weeks. Something may have to be done.
