Working on a lab report about ionic liquids (specifically ([C6-mim]PF6)) and I was just curious... :P

I can't even understand this question. Koolaid is dye, sugar, and artificial flavoring in water. If you dissolve those things in an ionic liquid, its not Kool-aid anymore, its just toxic.

Well biology uses water, not ionic liquids, because they are harmful to biology

So you can put kool-aid ingredients in an ionic liquid, but you'll be the only one who wants to call it Kool-aid and drink it.
