Your best bet might be to buy a supercharger oil service kit from one of the specialist/performance MINI suppliers. Can't remember who, but their kits come with dispenser bottles/syringes that you probably need to make the job easier plus anything else that's needed to do the job properly. Vecchio Engineering certainly sell the correct oil but I seem to recall that they sell a complete service kit as well.
