How about some lemoncello? It is a very sweet but strong Italian liqueur made with lemon, nice after dinner treat.
Here is a good recipe for this..,

ok, it's totally sacreligeous for any fancy tasty special lemons, buuuut:

if you have spare (say, older) lemons or limes lying about the house that you were about to toss out, run one in the garbage disposal. makes the kitchen smell wonderful, de-greases the icky in there, keeps those kitchen ants out of the sink.

Yes I seem to remember my brother eating them like an orange. He was also known to eat onions like apples too though. Might explain why he is like he is

Ahem, well, I do eat lemons like I do oranges too, just not as much. Anyway my story is I went to high school in a semi-arid catholic girls' school in Kenya and there was an irrigation scheme nearby and all the fruit we got were lemons and grapefruit...that is my story and I will stick to it! What's your brother's?

You would have to know him to know. He does not march to the beat of the same drum as everyone else. I often ask him what color the sky is in his world cause it sure as heck is not the same as mine

How about getting some honey and making something like a lemon ginger mead?

Too bad they aren't pineapples, then I'd know JUST what to reccomend!

Oh oh! Blame it on the onions, I'd say. having said that, some lemons are too bitter they can make you see things!
