Playing EXCLUSIVE: At Home With Christie Brinkley as She Re-Enters the Dating Pool and Shares Passion for Cocktails

Christie Brinkley is sharing with ET how she's navigating through single life.

Two months after splitting from boyfriend John Mellencamp, the model is back on the market but not on the dating apps, she told ET's Jennifer Peros during a recent visit to her home in the Hamptons.

"No," Brinkley said with a laugh. "Why? Which one do you recommend?"

At 62 years old, the mother of three is just as open to love as anyone else, except her priorities dictate that her children come first.

Her eldest daughter, 30-year-old Alexa Ray Joel, 30, is a singer-songwriter, while 21-year-old son Jack is trying out acting and 18-year-old daughter Sailor is following in her mom's footsteps.

"She looks like me when she's smiling and when she's not smiling, she's 100 percent her," Christie said of her model offspring. "She just has her own look. She's her own category."

Christie gave ET a tour of the 20-acre home, worth nearly $30 million, where her three children grew up in. The walls no longer ring with the laughter of little ones, but Christie is still keeping busy with her new line of Prosecco, called Bellissima, and all of her kids have been able to weigh in on the product.

"Sailor's not really old enough, but she gets to sip it at home, and she loves it," Brinkley shared.

Christie has had a passion for mixing drinks since the '80s and even kept a blender in her bag when she used to travel with ex-husband Billy Joel. The practice came in handy one night for a concert at Wembley Stadium in London.

"We go and visit with Prince Andrew, right? And he said, 'I've never been to a rock 'n' roll show before,' and I said, 'We got to go to Wembley! Let's go!'" Christie recalled. "So we all pile in the car and we end up taking the prince to his first rock 'n' roll show. He seemed a little bit nervous, so I just popped my blender out of my purse, and said 'I just happen to have a blender, and I will whip you up a margarita.'"
