For the Simple Syrup:
  1. In a saucepan over high heat, combine honey, water, jasmine flowers and lemon zest. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain into a jar and chill. (Store unused portion in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.)
For the Drink:
  1. In a shaker filled with ice, combine bourbon, mezcal, jasmine honey syrup and orange juice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, then pour in an Old Fashioned glass.
  2. To garnish, light one end of the cinnamon stick on fire with a lighter, then extinguish into the glass and stir.
