This isn't what the Church calls for. The GIRM states "Each communicant drinks a little from the chalice" (#286). This seems to call for prudence: clearly, the idea is not to drink so much that others are denied the opportunity to receive the Precious Blood; on the other hand, the Church is not calling for communicants to "take the tiniest sip" possible.
It's because of the scruples that I advised this. Also because some people seem to think it's up to them to drain the cup - I have literally seen someone come up and do that, and they weren't the last in line, either.
If the OP is afraid of getting any of the Precious Blood on his/her lips, then tuck the tips and take a tiny sip.
Or, you don't have to receive from the cup at all. You can just receive the Eucharist and you've received the totality of Jesus.
