Cocktail calls for a dash of absinthe. OK to leave it out or substitute?

I have all the ingredients needed to make a Corpse Reviver No. 2, except for absinthe (or pastis). Nor do I currently have any other anise-flavored liqueurs around, and would prefer not to buy one just to make this drink. I don't have any anise seed either. What I DO have is star anise. Can I use that instead? If so, how? Boil a pod in some water for it a bit, and use some of that water? Or how about if I just skip the absinthe, since only a dash is called for??
