Great!

Ok, here is what I would do, take a turkey baster and pull out as much as you can. Empty the whole thing if you can, but a small amount left in there won't matter. Pull it out with the baster, top it off with anti freeze and the rest will evaporate out of the system. A small amount will not damage a thing to be honest. It's about 85% alcohol and will just evaporate off.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
