Live+ is an energy drink marketed to New Zealanders by Monster Beverage Corporation.  It was originally known as Lift+ or Lift Plus and created and produced by Coca-Cola Amatil based on the soft drink Lift.
The brand, originally known as Lift Plus was which was introduced to New Zealand in 1999.  The brand over the years has seen an extensive marketing campaign, especially on the hit New Zealand TV show "Pulp Sport" hosted by Bill and Ben. The slogan for Lift Plus was "Sharpen Up!"  until mid-2011 when the new Lift Plus Extra Strength was launched and the slogan was changed to "wake up your buds" and "choose your level".
