“Do you make Kool-Aid?” he asked.Faulkner quickly recovered and noted out that she prepared "an adult beverage" for everyone to share.

The idea is that Black people = poverty = need for cheap drink = Kool-Aid. (Jon's Note: It seems silly to spell it all out, but I've already had people ask me how Kool-Aid is part of a racist stereotype.)
