"Freeside" is a Gibson-inspired Gibson variant, swapping out the Dry Vermouth for Dolin Blanc, and replacing the Pickled Onion with muddled Dill, Cucumber, Lemon Peel and Caramelized Ramp Bitters. Dill was chosen due to its resemblance to a data tree, an integral computer science data structure, while Kirby Cucumbers were used for having a similar shape as Gibson's Freeside space resort.
