It all depends on the extent of the damage - what condition is it in? In less severe cases, cold-damaged plants can be saved.

I would get it warmed back up indoors, water it and give it a boost of liquid fertilizer. Prune away damaged areas (if any).

In the meantime, please take a look at the following articles on how to save damaged plants:
