Skinny Copycat Wine A Rita

I love a frozen, fruity drink on a warm spring or summer day.  When my sister and I were in Canton we saw Wine A Rita's and fell in LOVE!  They are very yummy :)  Unfortunately, they also have tons of calories and are full of sugar.  120 Calories and 31 grams of sugar for 1 serving plus 150 calories for the wine.  One drink is 270 Calories - and I can drink several they are so good - YIKES!  And they retail for $12 for one blender package of mix. 

So this sent me on a quest to find a SKINNY and INEXPENSIVE Wine A Rita Copycat Recipe.  Someone online suggested Crystal Light so I thought I'd give it a try.  The combo I tried (Lemonade and White Zinfandel) was AMAZING and only 155 calories!!!  See below for other combos.
