I have found this method to work well for preserving Mint as an ingredient (mojitos, Missionary's Downfall, etc...) After the thaw it tends to be really limp and looses its color very quickly so I don't think this method works well for mint to be used as a garnish.
For mint as a flavor, it is pretty easy to make minted sugar syrup or even a mint cordial. You don't get the bright happy of having mint leaves in/on/around your drink, but you can still maintain the flavor profile for the drinks that need it.
