If you already know the drifting technique, it should already be easy to do a Mini-Turbo. While drifting, you just maintain that drift by sliding left and right. When you see sparks under your tire, that means you have drifted enough to successfully perform a Mini-Turbo. Release your finger to use it.

Drifting is more efficient when held for a longer time. The longer you hold it, the more bonus points and speed boosts are gained when used. Moving fast will also help you do a Mini-Turbo quicker. Use items with a speed boost or drive-on dash panels to help you out with that.
