Here is my best explanation:

'drink' is the definition.

(shandy is a kind of drink)

'with gritty stuff hard to get swallowed' is the subsidiary indication.

'with gritty stuff' becomes 'sandy'.

'hard' becomes 'h'.

'to get swallowed' is an insertion indicator.

'sandy' enclosing 'h' is 'shandy'.
