To create the simple syrup (ingredients marked with *):
- In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the apple peels, sugar, water and cinnamon stick to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until the sugar is dissolved.
- Turn the heat to low and simmer for an additional 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
- Allow the syrup to cool, then strain out the solids. (The syrup can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to one month.)
- Combine the simple syrup, gin, cider and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
- Shake vigorously to combine.
- Pour into an ice-filled glass and garnish with the cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.
