- Combine the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl. Make a small well in the center of the mixture.
- In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients (milk, water, tsipouro and the lightly beaten eggs).
- Add the wet ingredients to the well you made in the dry ingredients. Start to mix with a fork, moving it in an outward circular motion, until a thick mixture is formed. All of the ingredients need to be very well incorporated.
- Set the mixture aside to rest and place a pan with sunflower oil over medium heat.
- When the oil is hot, add spoonfuls of the mixture to the oil. Make 3-4 fritters at a time. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden.
- When they are all ready, remove from pan with a spatula. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and allow them to drain from excess oil.
- Serve with crumbled fresh cheese, honey and fresh thyme leaves.
