Cranberry sorbet + ?

I'm making a little bit of cranberry sorbet
(possibly with port) tomorrow as a palate cleanser and need suggestions for completing the dish-- maybe a complementary flavor of sorbet, a little savory cookie, or something else?

My first thought was to use a melon baller and serve a couple tiny scoops of sorbet along with a white chocolate truffle the same size. But I would really rather it be more light and refreshing, because I am still making two real desserts (pear-cranberry crumble
(or maybe pear-chestnut) and pumpkin tofu pie). I could make grapefruit sorbet, but I don't know if the flavors would work together. Or maybe a macaron, either not too sweet or straight-up savory. Or cheese? At home I have grapefruit, prunes, dried figs, Asian pears, oranges, persimmons, and apples, but I'm headed to the store anyway.
