My mini food processor does NOT have a hole on top so I use a blender.
Same thing. Or a stick blender.

Or if you only need a small amount, use an egg yolk, half cup oil, tsp of water; about tablespoon of acid, half tsp salt

corrections: tsp of acid (vinegar or lemon juice), 1/4 tsp salt.

Or you could go old school with a stoneware crock and a wooden spoon.

If you have a stick/immersion blender this is the easiest way:

As per Pat's method described in this link, the key thing to keep in mind is that the oil is added drop by drop as you create the emulsion (that's what the mustard is for, the emulsifying agent) and finishing with a drizzle. You can do it manually if you have a very steady hand with the oil bottle while you beat with a whisk. The mini-processor was designed with this in mind.
