the sugar will not sweeten it, it will actually dry it out and boost the alcohol content. you'll have to sweeten it immediately before drinking it, or add sugar after fermentation and use preservatives.

there are 28 grams in one ounce, so you are putting less the three oz. of honey and 2oz of sugar into 3 liters which is less then one gallon. Seem pointless

Honey takes an unusually long time to finish fermenting and in most cases you won't notice any honey-like characteristics in the final product. Or at least I didn't with my honey wheat. Try fermenting the juice by itself as the juice has more to do with the taste of the final product than any of the other ingredients you've listed. Once you've found a good juice that is readily available and consistent you can start tweaking by adding more fermentables like honey, fruit or table sugar.

You might want to do a little research on using the honey to naturally carbonate the cider in the bottle. I'm not sure if it's worth it but some of the natural aromatics of the honey might be better preserved in this way.
