According to Robert:

I was in "Chopsticks", a little Chinese restaurant near me where they specialize in Trader Vic Mai Tai's made from scratch, and I saw he had an unopened bottle of St-Germain on the back shelf. The owner had no idea what to do with it, just loved the bottle and so he bought it. I decided to try to make them up a "house specialty" cocktail to use it in, and so tried a variation of the Mai Tai... I named it "Ding Ho", since that means in Chinese about the same thing as Mai Tai means in Polynesian.
