You can add following custom action:

    Title="Publishing SiteActions Menu Customization"
    ControlAssembly="Your Assembly full name"        ControlClass="your class full name">

And following code in the Class file:

public class YourClassName : WebControl
    protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
        var siteActions = ToolBarMenuButton.GetMenuControl(this);
        siteActions.MenuControl.PreRender += (o, args) =>
            var targetMenu = siteActions.GetMenuItem("MenuItem_CreateSite");
            if (targetMenu == null) return;
