Since it is not possible to copy/paste objects with their color swatches you need to create a palette first. If you create an application palette then the swatches can't be global but will be available in any new document. For global swatches you need to create a document palette with global swatches. To use this in a new document you first export it from the document where they were created and import the palette into the new document. Import it as document palette to make use of their global property, otherwise you get the color swatches but as non-gobal only.

If you have a common set of colors you frequently use, you can also create a Template document, and create the Document Palette in the Template. Export the Template, and then when you're creating a new document you can select the Template in the new document dialog instead of selecting a Preset.
