Depends on where the sand got into. I'd probably try a shop vac first to see if I could suck the sand out. If that didn't work, I'd resort to flushing the brifters with WD-40 and then compressed air to blow the sand out followed by relubing.

Funny you ask this as someone just posted a very similar question about sand in brifters.
