How to rim a glass care of the Barefoot Contessa

drinkI was watching the Barefoot Contessa this evening and caught the episode where Ina makes a ton of different cocktails.  It was a nice little episode, but I caught something strange.  She rimmed one of the cocktails by dipping the glass into a beaten egg white.  She never explains why she does this.  I'm used to glasses being rimmed in lemon juice and then dipped into sugar.  Am I in the minority?  Does everyone do this?  I don't think I can bring myself to crack a whole egg open to merely rim a glass.  Please find a moment of your time to maybe explain to me the reasoning behind this egg white thing.  I beg you.
