Cheers! Meghan Markle has hit another milestone in her life as a royal. Believe it or not, the former Suits star will soon be the first member of the royal family (that we know of) to have inspired a flavor of seltzer.

Polar Seltzer, a beverage company that specializes in tasty carbonated drinks, announced its Winter 2018 collection on Tuesday, October 2, and the press release mentions Duchess Meghan, 37, by name with a nod to one of her favorite flavors.

“The 2018 Winter collection features the return of the breakout star from last year – Ginger Lime Mule and the New England seasonal darling Cranberry Cider,” the release states. New seltzer flavors include Hibiscus Cloudberry, which boasts an “exotic tartness,” and “jam-licious” Blackberry Clementine.

However, the duchess-inspired seltzer variety is the centerpiece of the collection. “Finally, to round out this 2018 set of seasonal seltzers is a resplendent recipe of noble vanilla with serene touches of pomegranate (and secretly inspired by our new American Princess the magnificent Ms. Markle) that we named Vanilla Zen,” the release continues.

According to the Boston Globe, Markle is a huge fan of vanilla smoothies, which she used to drink daily, and her love of food is no secret.

Before marrying Prince Harry in May 2018, the California native, now Duchess of Sussex, ran a now defunct lifestyle website called The Tig, where she frequently shared her favorite recipes and cooking tips. Even though Markle isn’t dishing out her favorite eats with the public anymore, she’s still found a way to make cooking a large part of her royal life.

For her first hosting event as a royal, Markle threw a launch party for the charity cookbook she helped commission – Together: Our Community Cookbook. The book, which Markle also wrote the forward for, benefits survivors of the June 2017 Grenfell Tower fire.
