double charge for Arnold Palmer at M&S Grill

Maybe I'm overreacting but . . .

Had lunch today at M&S Grill in the bar area with a colleague because it was convenient. Tuna melt was fine, and the french fries were really good. But, I ordered an Arnold Palmer to drink (fyi, 1/2 iced tea, 1/2 lemonade). I noticed it was a bit pricey on the menu for a nonalcoholic drink but that didn't bother me. What bothered me was that I did get a refill, after the waitress asked if I wanted more, and they charged me for a second drink. At almost every lunch place I've eaten in the downtown area, I have never been charged for refills on any nonalcoholic beverage. I guess I should have ordered a martini . . . $7 total for iced tea and lemonade? The waitress pointed out that the bartender makes them fresh each time (I didn't know that - how would I?) but she didn't change the bill.

It's not the money that bothers me, it's the principle. Am I out of line?
