I don't have two systems to try it on, but there is no reason it shouldn't work. AirDrop is just an ad-hoc network connection setup between the other computers on the network.

I've actually tried this and I keep getting a "transferred cancelled" message even though I never cancelled the transfer nor did I receive a prompt requesting authorization to transfer the file on the Mountain Lion computer

I can confirm it works, using an iMac running 10.7.3, and a MacBook Air running 10.8. Had no issues, worked just as though both machines were on 10.7

As above it works fine for me too!
