Add honey and water to a pot on low heat and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the honey is dissolved into the water. Set aside to cool.
Add 2 oz of the honey simple syrup to a shaker with lemon juice, apple juice and gin. Add ice and shake vigorously.
To make a salt rim, grate cinnamon into salt on a plate then brush the side of the serving glass with honey. Gently roll in the salt. To serve, light a stick of cinnamon and then cover with a glass to smoke for a few minutes. Add ice and pour shaker contents into the glass. Garnish with apple if desired.
