Substitute for Mastica?

I am making Gabrielle Hamilton's braised dandelion greens, and need something mastica-like to give it that piney Greek flavor

Ouzo will work too.

If mastica has an anise-like flavor, you can use Pernod. Or maybe even Anisette or Sambuca, maybe? Or what about crushing up some juniper berries - they are also pine-y flavored.
